The Taming by Lauren Gunderson, directed by Jake Penner.

When a right-wing political staffer and a left-wing social media activist are taken hostage by the reigning Miss Georgia on the eve of the Miss America Pageant, the trio are forced to re-write the U.S. Constitution before the beauty queen takes the stage to present their vision of a more more perfect union to a country that's lost its way.
