2018, Zimbabwe is at a crossroads. The young, charismatic opposition leader Nelson Chamisa is challenging the old guard, ZANU-PF, in the country’s first post-Mugabe elections.

In the context of economic crisis, food shortages and political violence, the stakes could not be higher, but can a free, fair and transparent election that reflects the will of the people proceed?

Director Camilla Nielsson returns to Zimbabwe 6 years after her acclaimed feature Democrats, creating a riveting observational feat filmed over 4 years from inside Chamisa’s campaign.
