The script gives value to a young boy's wish to make things better for his mom and he also provides for the community. His goal is for advanced farming technology to be given to them. Perhaps an unlikely achievement for a ten-year-old, the story nonetheless allows for the possibility of such a thing happening. The young man uses his intelligence and alertness of what is around him, does not give up, listens to his good older friend as a guide, and stays with the truth of his goal. I give this screenplay 4 out of 5 stars and recommend it for ages 10 to 18, plus adults. Reviewed by Juror #11.

With the help of his campaign manage and the K-street lobbyist who has a change of heart, the boy passes legislation for his home town and returns to a hero's parade
