In this David and Goliath story for the 21st century, Donald Trump is not a subtle man. When the tycoon developer sets out to build the world's most luxurious golf resort, he chooses the very birthplace of the sport as his proposed site. Nestled between ancient sand dunes and rolling greens, the picturesque town of Balmedie seems perfect, aside from the concerns of a handful of residents who immediately worry over the impact that the mammoth project will have on their beloved natural habitat. When farmer Michael Forbes refuses to sell his land to make way for the shovels, Trump's bullying tactics belie his goodwill publicity appearances. Filmmaker Anthony Baxter personally braves the brewing battle's front lines, the police and the Donald himself in this down and dirty development exposé.
