DIVIDED WE STAND is a video journey during the waning days of the 2004 Presidential Election. The director, Tom Drew, weaves his way across the Southwest through a line of 'swing states', from his home in Los Angeles to his parent's farm in Arkansas. The colorful assortment of Americans Drew profiles are very much divided in their feelings and opinions on just about every important issue of the day: God, gays, guns and the Iraq War. But in spite of these deep divisions, the documentary also tries to show what all of us have in common and what unites us as a country. If you have an interest in politics and America, then hitch a ride, sit back and take in the scenery along a road of discovery during one of the most divisive times in the history of our country.
