A David and Goliath story - a young part-time political science lecturer at Washington University decides to enter the Democratic congressional primary race for the U.S. Congress. His opponent has held the seat for 28 years and run for President twice.

The battle that ensues illustrates what happens when a new candidate with a band of passionate supporters goes head to head against the corporate establishment, name recognition and voters that don't pay attention.
