Episode Information2020 - A year the world will never forget. A pandemic that affected the entire world; a revolutionary black lives matter movement and now, an election that will decide America's future. What do we really know about America? For almost three years now, political news from the US has been viewed by the world with suspicion – and sometimes even disbelief: Trump is shocking the world as America, the former friend and ally drifts further away. It's now election time in the US, the big campaigns are under way. From here on, everything will only get more intense and much uglier. In an extraordinary long-term project, we embark on a journey past Trump's tweets. We will show how America really thinks and feels by shifting the focus away from politicians and commentators and onto the American people. Onto their lives. We want to know: how have their lives changed under Trump? And what does the future hold for them? Alongside footage from the black lives matter protests and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we dive deeper than ever before. Across five episodes we follow 15-20 protagonists as they voice their fears, hopes and dreams in the build up to the 2020 US elections.
