A dad is voted out of his family, and when he mounts a campaign for re-election, he finds out he's not the only one in the running.
Over breakfast one morning, Len’s family votes him out.
With nowhere else to go, he packs his bags and heads to the office. And as it turns out, he’s not the only one sleeping over. When Len finds out his colleague Mary has also been exiled, the two hit it off.
But when he launches his re-election campaign, Len discovers he’s got competition. Mary. The former confidantes become bitter rivals. Mary emerges as the family’s clear favourite and for the first time in his life, Len has to fight for something.
When the family sits down to vote again, Len wins—surprising everyone. But he’s exposed as a cheat, and is booted out again. This time he has another family to join though: Mary’s.
