Synopsis

Can one man with a dream win the heart of the world’s most powerful woman? This musical docu-tragi-comedy – part follows a love-struck soul’s hilarious, emotionally engaging, and ultimately shocking quest to woo Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
A spin on the Rapunzel fairy-tale, this unique romantic/political/biographic feature follows Devin Ratray, a portly musician, former child actor (famed as Buzz in Home Alone), and besotted admirer of Condi, as he prepares to meet her and win her heart. As Devin travels the country, learning more about the great lady from those who know her, Courting Condi tells the life story of one of our era’s most inspiring, enigmatic, and controversial figures. This film is a timely and classic love story, punctuated by witty and emotional songs. Music by Carol Connors (two-time Oscar-nominated composer of 'Rocky' and the 'Rescuers')
