"If you believe in governments [for, by, and] of the people, this film is for you."—Lupita Nyong'o

Daring and audacious, "Softie" Mwangi is one of Kenya's most accomplished photojournalists. But when he faces not only corruption but death threats to his wife, Njeri, and their children, he must decide whether his ideals are worth his family's safety. Is winning an election worth any price?

As captured in Sam Soko's Sundance jury award-winning documentary, running for election could be Softie's most difficult assignment yet.
