* Description: Young Anthony is angry about his parent’s betrayal, about being black and about his crippling disease. When, in middle-age, he is chosen to the first non-elected, randomly-chosen, demographically-accurate national legislature, he brings his painful background and present reality with him.

Josephine arrives in Washington from the mountains of North Carolina, full of good cheer and ready to serve her nation as a randomly-chosen representative in the Citizen House. Although she realizes Anthony chooses her only as a token -- a white female -- for his agenda to support eugenics under the guise of consumer-driven genetic engineering, Josephine turns the tables by taking charge with her own agenda for a Universal Basic Income.

This odd couple takes to the road in an autonomous bus to hold town hall meetings around the country. Their speeches engender both apathy and activism. A couple of dangerous adversaries kidnap Josephine and threaten to unleash weapons of mass destruction.

Can a fully representative Citizen House cope with such a challenge? Once having made that Next Step for Democracy, can The People maintain it?

This screenplay is formatted for easy reading rather than to film industry specifications.

* Page count: 125 pages
