Democracies should protect their citizens, especially the most vulnerable among them, but the United States is increasingly failing to do so. This investigative documentary shows how corporations and billionaires have taken control of the American political process and in doing so have brought economic hardship and ruin. It combines insights from political thinkers and journalists with the experiences of citizens where factory closures and outsourcing have left them desolate and hopeless.
