With the war for Earth’s freedom from a brutal regime over, the Earth’s acting President Luchenko (Beata Pozniak) attempts to establish order and peace.

“I was looking for an actor or actress to play "The President of the World", and I knew it had to be someone special to be believable.  I wanted an international feel and decided early on that my preference would be a woman.  In walks Beata, this really interesting, beautiful and strong woman.  She started reading and the character came alive.  You pray for this to happen during casting but it seldom does.  She had pages of dialogue and was always prepared and continued to work on the character throughout shooting”. Tony Dow, Director

“The chance to play the first female President of the world was a once in lifetime chance for an actress, a celebration of a woman’s spirit of leadership.” Beata Pozniak
