Description

In the hours leading up to Donald Trump’s unexpected victory on Election Day 2016, a cross-section of Americans go about their radically different lives: in Washington DC, Hillary Clinton’s Director of Video giddily anticipates a clean victory; in Massachusetts, a married couple who own a small business spar over how quickly Trump would be able to make America great again; in Utah, a Mormon mother canvasses for a third party candidate; in West Virginia, a coal miner worries that the election could lead to the loss of his industry; in San Jose, a Mexican American “Dreamer” worries that the election could lead to deportation; in Alabama, a recently exonerated death row inmate celebrates his first time voting in over 30 years; and in Philadelphia, NPR’s Dave Davies follows the news of the day as it unfolds. As the country braces itself for a surprising turn of events, what emerges is a portrait of American democracy in all its chaotic glory.

  • There's Still Hope...

    I was concerned this would put me back in my depression from last year's election results, but instead it gave me well-needed insight into the people behind last year's results and opened my eyes to a slew of opinions and positions I hadn't thought of. Really well put together and a great look back at a day that will live in infamy.
  • Less Biased Than Usual

    This is less biased for Democrats than usual but still biased. I don't think it was very good but not bad either. It was funny to see how out of touch Democrats were regarding how angry people were about the poor economy and Obamacare. The prejudice against people in rural parts of country is very real and the documentary does a good job of showing rather than telling. Not bad, not great, and worth the 99 cents.
