After 37 years of Robert Mugabe's regime, Zimbabwe is at a turning point. Nelson Chamisa becomes the new opposition leader and his charisma drives the most powerful election campaign in history. The whole country is mobilising for change, but the old police force led by Emmerson "The Crocodile" Mnangagwa is willing to do anything to hold on to power. An inspiring and shocking chronicle of the struggle for democracy in a corrupt, military-controlled system. A political thriller of unprecedented intensity, a frenetic clash between democracy and dictatorship.
In her documentary (which is more like a thriller), Camilla Nielsson shows how to destroy all pretensions of democracy in ten easy steps. (...) Nielsson shows that, in the world of politics, a happy ending is just the beginning. And that democracy must be built steadily, because for some, the old ways are always much more attractive.— Marta Balaga, Cineuropa
