| Fascinating look at young conservatives
This film was just recently broadcast on Swedish public service network. This documentary depicts three young conservative teenagers involved in local politics.

Very idealistic and patriotic at first but as the film follows them, they get more and more disillusioned with the political game, process and candidates.

What is so interesting about these young people is their naivety, idealism and also the fact that they really try to make change in various ways.

Anyone who says that young people aren't interested in politics should see this film because it kills a lot of the criticism aimed at the younger generations.

Hardest part is seeing how these guys struggle trying to find a better option when they realize how hard the realities of the political machine really is.

So, if you want to see an interesting documentary about young political people, then see this.

Afterwards, try to get hold of Choose Connor (2007)a brilliant political satire that shows another darker side of young political idealism.
