This documentary is amazing. The summary is posted above, read it. Right off the bat I you feel an emotional connection with Jeff Smith, and the feeling never subsides. The documentarians did a great job of connecting you right away with the protagonist, Smith, and never letting go. While the film seems personal you are alway getting a birds-eye view via local political commentators.

This film shows you how a campaign is run on a grass roots level. This film shows you how American politics really runs. This film is what every documentary should be.

Democrats and Republicans alike can love this political underdog story. 10/10 (not for people not interested in politics)
