An unemployed journalist decides to help his eccentric friend run for a seat on the Seattle city council while also trying to keep his relationship with his girlfriend together.
In this age of politicians garnering insults about expenses, philandering and, perhaps more suitable, talking about the 47% and the like, Grassroots comes at a time where it can most capitalise on peoples’ feelings towards mayors, ministers and other misers.
