Narrative:

The film takes place on Election Day of 2016. In one scenario, three best friends, wearing all white, stand together as they take in a historical moment and celebrate their victory.  In the alternate reality, they are dressed in loud colors and are raucous and tearful, yet united and resilient, as they dance to an anthem referenced by Hilary Clinton: "We Can't Stop", by Miley Cyrus.
