Someone once observed: "America is great because she is good; if she ever ceases to be good she will cease to be great." Today that notion of the essential goodness of America is under attack, replaced by another story in which theft and plunder are seen as the defining features of American history--from the theft of Native American and Mexican lands and the exploitation of African labor to a contemporary foreign policy said to be based on stealing oil and a capitalist system that robs people of their "fair share," Our founding fathers warned us that, although the freedoms they gave us were hard fought, they could very easily be lost. America stands at a crossroads, and the way we understand our past will determine our future. America the movie takes 21st-century Americans into the future by first visiting our past.

The media and today's globally-focused society has us trained to condemn what America was created for, and instead adopt an apologetic attitude to how our country has obtained grand status as a global leader. This documentary (backed by facts) has us looking at a radically strange point of view: that maybe the US isn't a tyrant, but rather a catalyst of opportunity. As it's been ever since it was founded.
