Synopsis
America is fighting relentlessly with itself, with its driving forces being infuriated citizens: supporters and sympathizers of the Tea Party movement. The dissatisfied, the disappointed and the unassured have come together in countless groups. Ben Cunningham from Nashville, Tennessee has been fighting for years for the ownership rights and against tax increases. He wants the US government to keep out the local politics. Ken Marrero transports pallets for a living and wants to teach his five kids at home together with his wife rather than letting teachers from public schools manipulate them. Tess S. and Ralph W. bought a campervan after 9/11 so that they can get themselves to safety, if another terrorist attack should occur. All of them are against Obama and are still active after his re-election.
The documentary I WANT MY COUNTRY BACK takes us on a journey into the spiritual life of conservative Americans in the ‘Heartland’ – a place where ultra-traditional American values are upheld, where local politics, federalism and independence from Washington are preached. The film portrays just how deeply divided today’s America is.
