When a bomb is discovered to potentially deploy during the Miss United States beauty pageant, only one FBI agent is fit to do the job – or, can be made over to look like she might be fit enough. Caught between befriending the contestants and trying to convince the public that she too is capable of becoming Miss United States due to her undeniable beauty both inside and out, stubborn and outcast FBI agent Gracie Hart (Sandra Bullock) is determined not to win America’s hearts but to keep it safe from exploding.

Part of our Winter 2019 season of Waverly Midnights: The Feds.
