Show Me Democracy documents the efforts of seven St. Lois college students in the aftermath of Ferguson as they evolve into advocates and activists who demand change through policy and protest.

The film follows them from the streets of Ferguson to the Missouri state capitol and showcases their attempts at education reform as they find out whether or not a group of committed young people can make a difference in complex and imperfect systems. 
 
The film tests the validity of the Margaret Mead quote, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."
