Daring and audacious, Softie Mwangi is one of Kenya’s most provocative photojournalist. But as a father of three young children, these qualities create tremendous turmoil between him and his wife Njeri.

Softie has long fought injustices in his country as a political activist. Now he’s taking the next step by running for office in a regional Kenyan election. From the moment he decides to run, telling his wife, Njeri, with a hesitant laugh, he responds to each challenge with optimism. But running a clean campaign against corrupt opponents becomes increasingly difficult. Softie soon finds that challenging strong political dynasties is putting his family at risk. Should his country really come before his family?
