Summary, etc.:
In this eye-opening documentary, filmmaker Jamie Johnson examines the gap that exists between America's poor and the 1 percent of the population that controls half the country's wealth. Johnson, himself an heir to the Johnson & Johnson fortune, interviews America's wealthiest, including Steve Forbes, Paul Orfalea, Nicole Buffet and Chuck Collins. Johnson also looks to the other side of the fence, interviewing farm workers, cab drivers and residents of housing projects, examining the day-to-day realities of poverty.
