After studying social and political sciences, Sebastian Doggart entered the universe of theater and then TV production. Today, he delivers his first cinematographic production. Devin Ratray, 30 years old, announces to his mother that he's found someone, and this someone is Condoleezza Rice. That is how the story of the Sebastian Doggart's latest production begins.
