Film Summary:

This film is mainly about the significance of voting. The following film spends most of the time accompanying two young men voting for the first time. As they go through the process, we learn that only 40% of the voting age population voted in the 2016 primary. The film explores the reason people should vote and what can happen when people don’t.
