The streets taken by protesters in Sennan Asbestos Disaster (42nd) become the battleground for Reiwa Shinsengumi, a new political party competing for seats in Japan’s Upper House. Documentarian Hara Kazuo follows Yasutomi Ayumi, a cross-dressing candidate, who is also a Tokyo University professor, as s/he and nine marginalized contenders embark on a national campaign, with music, dancing and even horses, in an effort to change the exploitative system. Defying expectations, two disabled candidates won seats in Japan’s parliament for the first time. The rest is not only history, but the future.
