Synopsis

Napoleon lives with his Grandmother, and he spends his days duking it out with his 32-year-old brother Kip and avoiding his door-to-door salesman uncle who's mentally stuck in 1982 - the year his football team "almost won state." Napoleon's life changes when he becomes friends with Deb and Pedro, and the trio launch a campaign to elect Pedro for class president. But for Pedro to win, Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon…
