In an era of extreme political stories, the 2017 special election in Georgia’s Sixth District stands out. There, a young Democrat named Jon Ossoff waged the most expensive Congressional campaign in American history, an epic battle in a Republican stronghold that would launch him to national prominence. Ossoff narrowly lost but, in the process, he battled Super PACs, the president’s tweets, a voracious media machine hungry for controversy, and his own insecurities. A year later, the seat was won by Black Lives Matter activist Lucy McBath. This film tells a story about how political transformation doesn't happen with one candidate or election, but through a community as it changes.
