From Preston, Idaho comes Napoleon Dynamite (Heder), a new kind of hero complete with a tight red 'fro, some choice moon boots, and skills that can't be topped. Napoleon spends his days drawing mythical beasts, duking it out with his 32-year-old brother Kip (Aaron Ruell) and avoiding his Uncle Rico (Gries), a door-to-door salesman who's mentally stuck in 1982 - the year his football team "almost won state." But when two new friends are brought into his life - Deb (Majorino), the artisan behind the "boondoggle key chain," and Pedro (Ramirez) with his sweet bike and talent with the chicks - Napoleon finds goals outside of being a star milk-tasting judge. Together the trio launches a campaign to elect Pedro for class president and make the student body's wildest dreams come true. But if Pedro is to beat stuck-up Summer (Duff), Napoleon will have to unleash his secret weapon...
