DR Congo, 2018. The long awaited presidential elections trigger hopes and debates all over the country. In the countryside, community radios struggle to cover the turmoil despite increasing political unrest, censorship and depletion of energy resources. When in a village lost in the palm fields a forgotten palm oil Diesel engine is found, all the farmers are asked to unite to save their local radio. A resounding tale about freedom of expression, political awareness and the frailty of democracy.
