14-year-old Miranda is on track to becoming a young political star in the right-wing populist party, Sweden Democrats. It is a young party, where the path to the top is quick – at least as long as you stick to the official party line, yet, in the superficially rule-abiding party, the top-down control is ruthless. While she still dares to criticise it, Miranda gets to experience the party’s brutal bullying methods. At first glance, she does not seem like a budding politician, yet, behind her restrained exterior hides a determined power seeker. Another factor is her family, which consists of a shamelessly racist mother, an Englishman father and a brother who has tattooed a set of brass knuckles on his forehead. It is precisely her brother's fatal encounter with Swedish healthcare that sets Miranda on her path. This is a portrait of a young right-wing idealist’s meteoric career in one of the nationalist parties that have gone from outsider to mainstream all over Europe.
