Abraham Lincoln could be considered the greatest president America ever had, he was ernest, a visionary and heroic, he also earned the respect of the world but where are the hero’s now asks reporter Jeremy Paxman.
As November quickly approaches, Paxman travels to Washington in a bid to understand how it is that the two current presidential candidates are two of the most hated and distrusted of all time. The supporters of Clinton and Trump seem to agree on only one thing, how unspeakable the other candidate is. One is alleged to have risked national security while the other has been accused of multiple sexual assaults. Are either of them fit for office?
In this film Jeremy meets with political insiders and voters from both Republican and Democratic sides casting his unsparing eye over a nation preparing for a historic election.
