A long feature documentary by Penda Houzangbe and Jean-Gabriel Tregoat
Determined to make a difference, Emilio and a small group of activists from social movements decide to run for an election for the first time, as candidates for PODEMOS. Elected representatives to the Asturian Parliament, they enter the political world they had always fought. Between their ideals and the constraints of institutional politics, we follow the “people of PODEMOS” through their coming-of-age journey.
