Från fylleslag via torken till återfödd kristen. Från svart guld på Texas oljefält till Vita huset i Washington. Från kampen för att ta sig ur pappans skugga till kriget bakom fiendens linjer i Irak. Här är den otroliga historien om USA:s 43:e president.
Oavsett du älskar honom eller hatar honom - eller älskar att hata honom - så år George W. Bush otvivelaktigt den mest kontroversielle och omdiskuterade amerikanske presidenten någonsin. Oscar®-vinnaren Oliver Stone har här tagit sig an berättelsen om W. och tecknar ett överraskande sympatiskt porträtt av lantisen som - närmast av en slump - kom att bli världens mäktigaste man.

In 1999, then Governor George W. Bush bought a ranch in the one-stoplight town of Crawford, Texas, calling it "home" just in time to set his sights on the White House. Having invented Bush's "folksy image," the campaign's victory thrusts Crawford onto the world stage and an insular community of barely 700 explodes overnight. While the high school band plays the inauguration and the Baptist pastor declares a miracle, Crawfordites sell souvenirs hand over fist, finding themselves nearly trampled under the heels of the international press corps, patriotic tourists and boomtown opportunists. Then, four and a half years into Bush's tenure, Cindy Sheehan and her peace movement arrive at the doorstep of the "Western White House." Crawford takes center stage. As 20,000 impassioned protesters and counter-protesters battle on Crawford's tiny streets, the symbol of the "small town" begins to change. Exacerbated tensions place pressure on the community as well as on the liberties Americans take for granted. And after seven years of this political stagecraft, a President's and a community's choices have an even graver human impact. Left to deal with the aftermath, the real people of Crawford are changed forever. Now comes Crawford, an often funny, deeply human story told by unforgettable characters. As witness to one man's (and his spin doctors') decision to intertwine his life with the real small town America, the film ultimately becomes a microcosm of a nation in flux - a unique and poignant reflection on the Bush era.
