Hunter S. Thompson went to the 1968 Democratic Convention in Chicago as a journalist and returned home disgusted, yet motivated by what he’d just seen: violently suppressed protests, riots, corrupt politicians, and abusive cops. Back in Aspen, he finds more of the same. The local police and sheriff’s departments are targeting young people, harassing and charging them with absurd crimes and trying to push them out of town. Hunter decides he has to do something to change the police brutality that has become the norm. We follow Hunter as he builds his own political movement, which grows from a local sheriff’s race to a national media sensation. He creates a platform in which he envisions completely reforming the sheriff's office and focusing on environmental crimes and corrupt developers.
