What happens when strong-willed women join the circus of politics? How do they create the change? Make the policy real? Achieve their dreams?
The 3 female politicians in this film, Jess Phillips (Labour, UK) Pramila Jayapal (Democrat, US) & Michelle Rempel Garner (Conservative, Canada), represent different
ends of the political spectrum, with different constituents and vastly different agendas. That said, they share one common fight – enacting bold policy in the face of an
outdated political establishment. Sometimes that fight pits them against their country’s leaders, and other times against their own political parties. Taking place in three
Western countries, the film will explore three democracies currently being rocked by the deep polarization of party politics.
Just as they all begin to make progress, they are thrown into elections and leadership campaigns, and are expected to shift gears for “the good” of their leaders or
parties. As each woman’s portrait becomes fully realized, the viewer must decide whether our system allows for their success.
