Logline: As Texas’s Senate race near, an ethics professor sets out to derail the political campaign of a seemingly honorable candidate by unleashing shocking secrets that threaten to upend both of their personal lives and his political future.
Synopsis: “Mighty Mona” is a story about an ethics professor named Mona Catlyn who has managed to live a simple, introverted life by devoting her time to her son and career. One night, a news report breaks that Randy Richards is running for the Texas Senate, which, shockingly, enrages Mona. She then sets out to derail his political campaign, which seemed to be working until Randy takes down a gunman at a mass shooting and becomes a national hero. In a desperate attempt to take the spotlight off of Randy’s heroic act, Mona unleashes a dark secret that Randy raped her when she was fifteen-years-old. Now, Mona is forced to defend herself from the court of public opinion, so she exposes one last scandalous secret, which threatens to upend both of their personal lives and Randy’s political future.
