In this fourth film in a series of five films, 6 activists from equal education unpack how politics always seems to come before the people and how the minster of basic education is no exception. They believe it is time for a systematic change, voters should be given the opportunity to vote in their own ministers instead of political parties putting their people forward so that they can become millionaires and billionaires.
