Documentary filmmaker Rachel Boynton travels across the United States exploring how Americans tell the story of the Civil War. Filmed from the last year of Obama's presidency through 2021, Boynton interweaves scenes and interviews filmed in the North and the South, painting a multifaceted portrait of the American psyche and the deep roots of its turbulent times, and laying bare a nation haunted by an embittered past and the stories it refuses to tell.
