Capitalism: A Love Story investigates the impact corporate dominance is having on the lives of everyday Americans. The film moves from Central America to the halls of power in Washington, to the global financial capital in Manhattan.
Filled with humour and outrage, the film explores the question: What is the price that America pays for its love of capitalism? Families pay the price with their jobs, their homes, and their savings.
Michael Moore goes into the homes of ordinary people whose lives have been thrown into chaos; and he goes looking for explanations in Washington, DC and anywhere else he can find one.
What Moore finds discovers sounds all-too-familiar of a love affair gone wrong: lies, abuse, betrayal and how 14,000 citizens becoming unemployed every day.
The movie also presents how we could shape a future that looks brighter. Who are we and why do we behave the way we do.
