True Son

While Barack Obama inspired hope and change throughout the nation, for most people, politics is local. True Son is a documentary about 22-year-old Michael Tubbs, who ran for City Council in Stockton, California at a time when the town was ravaged by economic hardship and rising crime. Tubbs sets out to beat a seasoned politician twice his age and bring his community back from the brink.
