Introducing

Referring to that series of once-ubiquitous, government-sponsored television shorts that dramatized milestones in Canadian history, Rankin and company (which also includes a moustache-twirling Sean Cullen as a tyrannical Governor General) have brilliantly conjured a Heritage Minute from hell: a perverse, phantasmagoric parody of Canadian national identity, and the figures that inspired it.

Synopsis

Toronto, 1899. Mackenzie King dreams of becoming Prime Minister of Canada. But his quest for power pits him against his mother and a Governor General. When the campaign leads to a struggle of good versus evil, King learns that deception is the only way to survive the 20th century.
