King of America
High school basketball star Bobby King (Finn Wolfhard) is a normal American boy —until he wakes up one day to find himself, inexplicably, crowned the King of America, with a coterie of ministers, handlers and hangers-on all at his beck and call. At school, Bobby's friends are intimidated by his new status, leaving Bobby alone as he enters a head-spinning world of momentous decisions and near-unlimited authority. As the world situation worsens and pressures on Bobby mount, he longs more and more to return to the simple life he once knew. Finally, when war with China appears inevitable, Bobby challenges the country to a basketball game. He sinks the winning shot, defusing the crisis, and then announces he is abdicating his throne.
