Blue State

Synopsis: On the eve of John Kerry's 2004 defeat, campaign volunteer John Logue, canvasing in Ohio, says he'll move to Canada if Bush wins. His pledge gets televised, so when John returns to San Francisco - where his old job and girl-friend evaporate - his friends expect him to deliver on the promise. He gets a call from, accepts their invitation to come to Winnipeg, interviews traveling companions, picks Chloe (she with a nose ring), and sets out. Both John and Chloe have secrets, revealed one at a time, and Winnipeg in 2004, with men and women willing to help US ex-pats gain citizenship, may not be what either needs. Echoes of the Vietnam war help them decide.

A bunch of us were gonna do something,

but you're really gonna do it.

Man, you're moving to Canada. Wow!

Oh, Canada!

John Logue is going to Canada

Hey, Craig, is she in?




Bad day, huh?

It just feels like a different country.

Like, you can feel the depression in the air.

Oh, I know how hard you worked. I'm sorry.

I'm sorry for all of us.

I've got bad news. If you're here

for your old job back, it's gone.


DigiHouse cancelled

their account yesterday.

They what?

Yeah, they decided to go

with a more conservative approach.

They're moving their operations

to Nashville.

Oh, this is unbelievable.

Hey, I thought that blogging thing

was really taking off for you,

you know, with the election and all.

Have you been reading it?


Angry Donkey.

Thedonkeyrevolution. Com.

Right. Well, I checked it

a couple of weeks ago.

I'm sorry.

Look, I will let you know

if I hear of anything.

Maybe we can grab a drink this week.

I thought...

Did you give any more thought

to, you know, us?

John, I...

What is that?

I know.

I've been meaning to talk to you.

I thought we were

just taking some time off.

Well, you didn't even want to talk

while you were away.

I was focused on the campaign.

I thought now was the time

we were gonna discuss us.

Well, how long

was I supposed to wait, John?

Apparently, not that long.

Who is it?

Don't do this.

Do I know him?




I'm sorry.

Okay, I should've told you sooner.

You think?

You've reached John Logue.

I'm off campaigning

for the future of America right now, so

leave a message and I'll get back to you

on November 3rd. And don't forget to vote.

Hello, John, I'm calling

from MarryACanadian. Ca

up here in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

That's in Canada.
