Le distributeur décrit le documentaire comme « un regard provocateur et comique sur notre époque », faisant référence à l'élection présidentielle américaine de 2016 et à la présidence ultérieure de Donald Trump. Le documentaire explore également deux questions: comment les États-Unis ont progressé vers la présidence Trump et comment « sortir » de l'ère de l'administration Trump.

The film begins with a series of security footages of armed bank robberies (one of the robbers was on a crutch) accompanied by the song Louie, Louie. Moore then uses an Encyclopædia Britannica archive video to compare and view modern-day America with the Roman Empire, by juxtaposing depictions of the fall of the Roman Empire with similar modern-day American issues. The film then depicts home videos of families being evicted from their homes, as well as the "Condo Vultures," a Florida real estate agency whose business flourished with the increasing number of foreclosures.

Si le fond des combats de Michael Moore semble légitime, ses méthodes de travail ne le sont pas toujours. Remontant jusqu'aux débuts de la carrière du très médiatique réalisateur de "Fahrenheit 9/11", "Bowling for Columbine" et "Sicko", ce documentaire livre un éclairage édifiant sur les méthodes de Moore pour rendre ses documentaires toujours plus efficaces : se mettre lui-même en scène, pratiquer des raccourcis commodes, sortir une interview de son contexte, biaiser... Il use ainsi, lui aussi, d'un arsenal discutable pour servir autant son propos que ses intérêts : avec ce documentaire, c'est l'arroseurs arrosé !

According to Sicko, almost fifty million Americans are uninsured while the remainder, who are covered, are often victims of insurance company fraud and red tape. Furthermore, Sicko points out that the U.S. health care system is ranked 37 out of 191 by the World Health Organization with certain health measures, such as infant mortality and life expectancy, equal to countries with much less economic wealth. Interviews are conducted with people who thought they had adequate coverage but were denied care. Former employees of insurance companies describe cost-cutting initiatives that give bonuses to insurance company physicians and others to find reasons for the company to avoid meeting the cost of medically necessary treatments for policy holders, and thus increase company profitability.

In September 2004, UVSC student council leaders, Jim Bassi and Joseph Vogel, invited liberal filmmaker Michael Moore to come speak on campus. The predominantly conservative community of Orem surrounding the school erupted in an uproar. A pandemonium of protests, petitions, and demonstrations escalated into hate mail, threatening phone calls, threatened lawsuits, and countless incendiary editorials.
