A math teacher becomes Mayor of the crime infested, corrupted police, and chaotic traffic city of Bogota.
He turned the city into a social expiriment. Using mimes to control traffic, pedestrian death rates dropped. Women's Night brought out 700,000 women while men stayed at home taking care of the children. The murder rate dropped significantly, and people started to save money by not wasting so much water.
