About No Small Plans
No Small Plans is the story of three women running for Chicago City Council. The film examines the personal stakes and strategic, political considerations behind managing campaigns. No Small Plans is about what it takes to win and why it matters. In the face of apathetic voters and entrenched incumbents, these women share a drive and desire to represent their communities in city government.
