Plot Summary: In this searing exposé on the state of democracy in America and the fracturing of the Republican Party, Academy Award®-nominated directors Carl Deal and Tia Lessin (Trouble the Water; co-producers Fahrenheit 9/11 & Bowling for Columbine) follow the money behind the rise of the Tea Party. "Citizen Koch" investigates the impact of unlimited, anonymous spending by corporations and billionaires on the electoral process, featuring stories of life-long Republicans whose loyalty is tested when the GOP sets its sights on the very economic ground on which their families stand. With their futures at risk and everything at stake, we witness the experiences of three Wisconsin state employees who are forced to choose sides.
