Directed by Jesse Moss (Boys State), this film uses unprecedented access to South Bend, Indiana mayor Pete Buttigieg, his husband Chasten, and members of their campaign team from the days before he becomes the first openly gay presidential candidate, through his historic Iowa Caucus victory and campaign, and to his joining the Biden administration as the nation’s first LGBTQIA+ cabinet member. This film is a fascinating look inside one of the most intense campaign cycles of our time, and a powerful story of perseverance and politics.
