Shazia Ilmi speaks into a microphone

An Ordinary Election tells the extra-ordinary story of the Aam Aadmi Party’s debut election campaign in the constituency of RK Puram, Delhi. From the campaign war room to the streets, from the narrow lanes of urban slums to the manicured parks of upper-class neighborhoods, the crew follows the candidate Shazia Ilmi and the ordinary men and women of the Aam Aadmi Party fighting to change the terms of Indian democracy in an election campaign where victory seems impossible.
