Filmmaker Luciana Kaplan follows Eufrosina over the years as she attacks gender inequality and the lack of women’s voting rights in her community. Eufrosina is completely devoted to improving the lives of her people in Santa Maria Quiegolani, an indigenous community located in Oaxaca, Mexico. But in 2007 when Eufrosina is elected mayor of Santa Maria Quiegolani her victory is annulled because she is a woman. Kaplan’s stirring, well-crafted documentary shows how this setback transformed Eufrosina into a grassroots activist for the rights of women and indigenous communities.
