In a divided America, Van Jones controversially works across party lines for landmark criminal justice reform and a more humane response to the addiction crisis. Attempting to be a bridge builder in a time of extreme polarization takes Jones deep into the inner workings of the Trump administration, from internal debates within both parties to the lives of frontline activists fighting for their communities. This timely and intimate documentary examines the various issues that divide the country, as well as the people striving to make this country better. Introduction by Chandler Ferrebee (VAFF), discussion with filmmakers Brandon and Lance Kramer and criminal justice reformer Louis Reed
