Synopsis

Since the age of seven, Payton Hobart (Ben Platt), a wealthy student from Santa Barbara, has had his life all figured out—he knows he's going to be the President of the United States.

The plan is simple: Get elected Student Body President and then secure a spot at Harvard. But first, he has to outsmart his ruthless classmates in the most treacherous political landscape of all: Saint Sebastian High School.

However, his campaign for student body president hits a snag when his running mate (Zoey Deutch) makes a homophobic slur, and when he’s opposed by another student, River (David Corenswet), who’s handsome, more popular than Payton, and a better public speaker.
