Follow the Leader

About This Episode


Follow the Leader is a real-life coming-of-age story of three American boys with dreams of becoming the President of the United States. At sixteen-years-old, high school Class Presidents Ben, D.J. & Nick are all conservatives who plan to continue leading their peers as President someday. Over three life-changing years, they split into Republican, Democratic and Independent camps as each reconsiders his lofty ambitions.

Growing up at a critical moment for America, their lives force us to rethink our assumptions about tomorrow’s leaders, and the impact of 9/11 and Obama’s election. As shocking as Jesus Camp, as revealing as American Teen, and as funny as Spellbound, Follow the Leader is the true story of what “change” means for three young leaders who feel destined to lead the world.
