While many may wonder just how a billionaire tycoon and a reality TV star is allowed to hold down the most important job on the planet, back in the eighties, it was Ronald Reagan who shocked the world by somehow evolving from an actor to a politician and eventually getting the top gig in the White House. This documentary looks at how he did it, and how, whether Reagan knew it or not, his ascent to the presidency may have been funded, financed and made possible by criminal organisations. Clara and Julia Kuperberg piece together all the evidence available with investigative journalists, biographers, a Federal Attorney and James Ellroy, an outspoken fan of Ronald Reagan.
