​In the waning days of New York City's lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic, an unusually high number of candidates ran for city council in the 2021 local primary elections. In the 26th Council District in Queens, 15 candidates, the most of any district, representing a wide range of cultures and points of view, appeared on the Democratic ballot. The race came as Western Queens became known as a progressive hotbed with the rise of socialist elected officials such as Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, and the local fight against Amazon's plans for a headquarters in the district. This film follows the campaigns in the last few weeks of the most crowded race.
