Summary:
A college adjunct and political unknown at age 29, Jeff Smith decides to run for the newly-open congressional seat of retired Democratic leader Richard Gephardt. Not only does Smith face the full disbelief of his own family and the inevitable comparison to the political heavyweight Gephardt, the neophyte candidacy also faces a well-placed opponent, Russ Carnahan, who is supported by the longstanding political dynasty of his own family. The film follows the length of Smith's campaign, detailing the effort and achievements of both Smith and his grassroots supporters in the face of great odds.
