Synopsis by Andrea LeVasseur
Portuguese filmmaker Joao Botelho directs the political farce The Woman Who Believed She Was President of the United States. Alexandra Lencastre stars as the title character who thinks her home in Lisbon on Washington Street is really The White House. Surrounded by a cast of well-costumed women supporters, she proclaims "I am the President of the U.S.A.; I can do whatever I want!" While she locks up her mother (Laura Soveral) in the basement, she is aided by her Secretary of State (Rita Blanco). On her birthday, she throws a huge party in honor of her re-election and plans to control the entire world.
