Documentary filmmaker Danny Schechter asks whether it was a disorganized media or a team of irresponsible vote counters who were responsible for misplacing the 180,000 ballots that would have elected Al Gore as President of the United States in the 2000 elections in this film examining one of the most hotly debated elections in American history. Nearly a decade after the fact, many Americans are still left wondering how our country sunk to the point we're at as the 2008 elections loom on the horizon. While many are afraid to simply go near the subject do to sensitive issues of disenfranchisement, racial exclusions, and voting rights violations - not to mention the subverting of an official recount - director Schechter poses the questions that could help to heal the festering wounds of division and, with a little luck and a lot of debate, finally set our country back on the right course.
