In the politically charged election year of 2008, ACORN, a national community organizing group, comes under attack from two undercover journalists, James O’Keefe and Hannah Giles. The pair posed as a pimp and prostitute to try to expose ACORN’s business practices via hidden camera. The ensuing drama spawned the now omnipresent Breitbart Media, and drove an even deeper wedge between Democrats and Republicans. This nonfiction political thriller goes beyond the 24-hour news cycle and cuts to the heart of the great political divide we live in today.
