Description

In the wake of the 2016 presidential elections, three women quit the lives they once knew to run for office. Katie Muth is an athletic trainer in Western Pennsylvania running for the Pennsylvania State Senate against a 14-year incumbent. She scrapes together campaign funds and struggles not to cuss when talking with potential donors. A Peruvian immigrant who speaks English with an accent, Elizabeth Guzman won’t be bullied into silence. She is a candidate for the Virginia House of Delegates, standing up for her children and for old-school American values. High school teacher Jennifer Bacon is running for the Denver school board against a charismatic 19-year-old. All of these women feel called to service by a dire need borne out of their disillusionment with the current political climate, and they respond, valiantly and unapologetically. (USA, 2019, 60 min.)
