Directed by Susan V. Booth
When two former activists set out to find a candidate they can back in an upcoming congressional race, they find a political landscape very different from the one they remember from their 1970s "glory days." The wave of womanpower that draws them back into the fray seems a strange place, long on contradictions and increasingly short on sisterhood. Their efforts to expand their ideas lead them to question not only their individual values but a friendship that has sustained them for 30 years. Drawing on a life of art and activism, Cleage explores the current political landscape with an insider’s eye, a wry humor, and a true believer's heart.
