It's time for student government elections. High school students prepare for the race. Four groups with different platforms and opinions create proposals, debate campaign strategies, and strive for improvements at the school. Conflicts and tensions between campaign teams reveal their political differences, and the force of reality intertwines with resistance to dreams, friendships, and the right of students to create alternatives for the world in which they believe.
