Documentary filmmaker Penny Little ponders the death of democracy in this film examining the mysteries and complexities of the 2004 presidential elections. Opening with a series of man-on-the-street interviews that hint at serious problems with electronic voting machines and moving on to spotlight various voting irregularities in Florida and Ohio in 2004, Little's film asks why the mainstream media continually shied away from covering these important issues to the American public. By posing these difficult questions, Little ponders just why the voting machines were so easily hackable, and whether our votes truly do count. Interviews with a wide variety of journalists, international poll watchers, election officials, public figures like Rev. Jesse Jackson, Jim Hightower, and Greg Palast, as well as everyday voters, ensure that all sides are equally represented.
