The United States: one nation – divided. Filmmaker Susanne Brandstaetter explores polarization in the U.S., which shows striking parallels to Europe. An American from L.A. who’s been living all her adult life in Europe, she decides to get close to some non-typical Trump voters in the swing state Ohio. What determines people’s choices? Why do people form opinions and then stick to their political positions – no matter what? The filmmaker decides the only chance to understand why the divide is growing is to follow one rule: don’t argue, listen… But as the film progresses, we all are put to the test.
