Synopsis by Ronnie D. Lankford, Jr.

In the first segment of the program, host Michael Moore travels west to find out why so many people have been losing their minds in Montana. He talks to a number of citizens and even discovers a new line of cabins called "The Unabomber." He finally decides that Ted Kaczynski and Russell Eugene Weston Jr. had one thing in common -- they both lived in one-room shacks. Moore hires a helper and they begin to demolish all of the one-room shacks in Montana. Next, The Awful Truth turns to "Joe the Camel," the former R.J. Reynolds employee. Down on his luck, Joe applies for unemployment insurance before resorting to shining shoes and cleaning windows to make ends meet. Finally, he returns to R.J. Reynolds to visit old friends where security personnel surround him. Finally, Moore calls Lucianne Goldberg on the phone to let her know that he has a web-cam aimed at her apartment.
