Movie Info

Set in 1994 during the Virginia Senate race between Oliver North and Charles Robb, this documentary explores the dark side of the campaign trail to offer a rather cynical view of the state of democracy by showing how neither candidate possesses the sterling moral qualities so coveted by the voting public. North, a notorious slick-talking lieutenant-colonel who was embroiled in an arms scandal during the late '80s and managed to come out reborn as a politician, is the primary focus of the film that allows the viewer to see both the public campaigns and the underhanded behind-closed-door tactics employed by both candidates. To underscore the action, the filmmakers also provide interviews with notable insiders who find the whole farcical process an source of unending disillusionment.
