Synopsis
How does an election campaign work at grass-roots level, far away from Berlin? Six young politicians of the biggest political parties compete in the German federal election 2017 to stand up for their beliefs. By attending panel discussions, door-to-door campaigning, visits at the local fair and interviews we learn how election campaigns work on a small scale. Our protagonists are always close to the people, who support, criticize or reject them. Despite the difficulties, they all have to act according to the motto "Keep on fighting!".

With David Dietz, Thomas Hitschler, Max Keck, Misbah Khan, Jan Metzler, Sebastian Münzenmaier
