India, the world’s largest democracy, is preparing for an election. With more than 800 million voters, this is a logistical puzzle of epic proportions. Newton is an idealistic young office clerk volunteering to be a poll worker. He’s keen to put his energy to good use and help his country. When he is presented with an opportunity to head up a dangerous polling station in the deepest jungle, which has been besieged by communist troops for decades, Newton eagerly jumps at the opportunity to prove his mettle.
