Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

The major internal conflict that highlighted the early days of the Republic is showcased in a filmed version of a play detailing the conflict between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton and originally staged at the Asolo State Theater in Sarasota, Florida. Despite Jefferson's long-ranging, egalitarian-based democratic suggestions on how the country should be run, his razor sharp counterpart Hamilton displayed withering contempt for the mind of the common man by taking a more federalist approach to politics. Though the respect shared between the two ran deep, the fundamental clash in their belief systems would strike deep-rooted discord as a fledgling nation continued to grow.
