Synopsis
A sendup of corporate America filmed during Michael Moore's book tour of "Downsize This" and attacking the billions of dollars in corporate welfare that Big Business receives from the United States government. Armed only with his camera, his sense of humor, and an unwavering eye for inequity, Michael Moore embarks on a one-man campaign to persuade various Fortune 500 companies to reconsider their downsizing decisions. Along the way, he trades Bob Dylan riffs with Cheap Trick's Rick Nielsen and goes toe-to-toe with Nike CEO Phil Knight.
