Bolivia’s socialist, indigenous president Evo Morales has been working to establish revolution there since 2005. One person who has played a small part is Jiovana Navias, an unemployed single mother at the time of her election to parliament as a member of Morales’ party. Her explicit mandate was to represent those like her, some of the most marginalised Bolivians. Shot between 2007 and 2014, the film charts her initial campaigning and optimism, her frustrations with the compromises she has to make and her trial on corruption charges. Through her we see what happens when far-left ideology meets the realities of power.
