As Prime Minister, Andrew Dugdale (Shaun Micallef) mattered. He dined with presidents and kings, hosted world summits and changed the lives of millions of his fellow countrymen.
But now he’s retired; a not-so-elder statesman with time on his hands to ponder the question – was it all worth it? Not that he’s asking of course. Instead, his inquisitive and over enthusiastic ghostwriter Ellen has an unhelpfully insatiable appetite for the truth. After the advance for his memoirs is spent, but writing nothing in return, Dugdale must accept Ellen into his dysfunctional household which includes a wife in name only, a grown up daughter with father issues plus her son, his chief-of-staff who knows where the bodies are buried, and a chauffeur who spends most of his time scraping egg off the ex-PM’s car.
So begins a comic tango between truth and spin as Ellen and Dugdale take to the dance floor.
