Film Description:
"In 1978, Anne Cools ran for the Liberal Party nomination in Rosedale, one of Toronto's largest and socially most diverse federal ridings. The film both records her bid for political power and explains the nomination contest, a basic step in the Canadian electoral process. Because she was competing against the Liberal Party's preferred candidate, the nomination battle in Rosedale turned into one of the most innovative and fascinating in the history of Canadian politics."
