When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis,
Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant
to save her home from foreclosure.

After losing a loved one to a preventable medical condition,
Amy Vilela didn't know what to do with the anger she felt about
America's broken health care system.

Cori Bush was drawn into the streets when the police shooting
of an unarmed black man
brought protests and tanks into her neighborhood.

Paula Jean Swearengin was fed up with
watching her friends and family suffer and die from the
environmental effects of the coal industry.

At a moment of historic volatility in American politics,
these four women decide to fight back,
setting themselves on a journey that will
change their lives and their country forever.

Without political experience or corporate money,
they build a movement of insurgent candidates challenging
powerful incumbents in Congress.

Their efforts result in a legendary upset.
