Synopsis

Documentary following the 2008 presidential election in Ghana, Africa. The footage follows campaign leaders Nana Akufo-Addo of the New Patriotic Party and John Atta Mills of the National Democratic Congress as they try to win over the voters. Without significant differences in their policies, Akufo-Addo and Mills attempt to gain the upperhand using their personalities and making promises to the public. The film also takes a look at the frailty of Africa's democratic state, with corrupt officials and voting issues.
