Synopsis

Made-for-TV docudrama about the 2000 US presidential election and the furore surrounding the crucial result from the State of Florida. The major figures from both sides of the George W. Bush - Al Gore contest are portrayed as the contest reaches its controversial and farcical climax. Al Gore's former Chief of Staff Ron Klaine (Kevin Spacey); Republican advisor James Baker (Tom Wilkinson); and Florida Secretary of State Katherine Harris (Laura Dern) do everything they can to get the result they want. Every last 'hanging chad' is scrutinised, recounts abound and every possible legal challenge is mounted until, at last, the result is declared.
