Gnarr Cast and Crew | Focus Features

From Focus World, the hilarious true story of the comedian who ran for mayor of Iceland's largest city. But what starts a joke suddenly becomes serious when people start to believe - against all odds - that he might just be the best man for the job.

With Iceland falling on hard times, Jon Gnarr decided to invent a new political party - the subtly named "Best Party" - and run for office in order to mock the squabbling left and right. With a campaign that included mandatory viewings of HBO's "The Wire" for all politicians, free towels at public pools, and a "drug-free parliament by 2020," Gnarr soon found himself with unexpected political momentum, and realized that against all odds - he just might win.
