By Mario Correa

Directed by Kathleen Tissot

In the darkly comic COMMANDER, an ambitious politician battles public doubts, personal demons, and his own partner in a troubled quest to become President of the United States.
COMMANDER centers on the complicated relationship between Ned Worley, a former college professor who becomes Governor of Rhode Island, and his openly gay partner, Richard, who sees little to gain--and much to lose--from Ned's bid for the Presidency.
