At the heart of An Insignificant Man is the most polarising man in India today - Arvind Kejriwal. Filmed over the course of 2 years, this film is a portrait of power, corruption and a controversial man. The film gives an insider's view into Arvind Kejriwal's brand of politics which has been labelled selfish, dangerous, anarchic and yet revolutionary. Shaking the country's most powerful political establishments with basic public issues like water, electricity, and graft, Kejriwal has emerged as the leader of the newest political force in India - the Common Man's Party. With never-before-seen footage, the film offers a unique insight into a fledgeling political party's battle between survival and extinction in the largest democracy in the world. Capturing moments of triumph and despair, the film is a moving cinematic journey through the narrow lanes of Delhi's shanty towns to the closed corridors of political power.

The filmmakers had direct access to all the private meetings and most, if not all, areas where Arvind Kejriwal went, resulting in the use of much footage that was not even seen by Arvind Kejriwal's most devoted followers in India. He enjoys tremendous support in India, mainly from the youth, for his belief in getting to the core of a problem and solving it as soon as possible, which is basically unheard-of in the glacially-slow world of Indian governance.
