This documentary examines the impact of corporate dominance on the everyday lives of Americans (and by default, the rest of the world). The film moves from middle America, to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial epicenter in Manhattan. With both humor and outrage, the film explores the question, "What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism?" Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes and their savings. Moore goes into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been turned upside down; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and elsewhere. What he finds are the all too familiar symptoms of a love affair gone astray; lies, abuse, betrayal and 14,000 jobs being lost every day. This documentary also presents what a more hopeful future could look like. Who are we and why do we behave the way that we do?
