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!”.
