Summary
A behind-the-scenes video diary of the promotional tour for Moore's book "Downsize this!" He appears at several chain bookstores throughout the nation, signing autographs and delivering wicked political commentary to audiences. Along the way, he stops at various small-town parking lots and malls, gathering brief interviews with assorted Americans. Moore makes several cleverly unexpected visits to people in powerful positions. In Centralia, IL, Moore visits a company who plans to move their factories to Mexico, resulting in massive layoffs. Finally, Nike CEO Phil Knight grants Moore some dialogue
