More than a hundred million Americans don't vote. Even when they're electing their president and, with that, the most powerful political leader in the world. A year before the presidential elections of 2008 a crew of young European filmmakers goes on a journey all across the country in a little old motor home to search for America's missing voters.
Episode 1: Discovering Non-Voting America
In early September 2007 we touch US shores in New York City and move over to the political heartland of the US, Washington DC, for a crash course about low voter turnout in America. Who are they? Why don't they vote? Can a young and fresh presidential candidate as Barack Obama make them vote? How would American politics change if more young people, single women, poor white people, African-Americans and Latino's would start voting? Who better than Oprah could get America's non-voters to vote in 2008.
