This documentary follows the trail of the Bush family, from the Saudi connection to the Bush team's spiking the FBI investigation of the bin Laden family and post-war Iraq. Takes a hard look at the role of business in the American justice system and alleges that many companies' motives are not only impure, but a detriment to society as a whole. Among the companies profiled are DBT, which contributed largely to the infamous Florida felon's list that kept thousands of African-American voters away from the polls in the hotly contested state of Florida during the 2000 election.
