DC is one of the only capitals in the world where its citizens have no representation in the national legislature and where federal authorities routinely intrude on the local government. The film looks at four turning points in the history of Washington, DC to understand how this happened and to show the struggles of DC residents to gain basic rights of self-government that other Americans enjoy.
