90 min.DK/Documentary

The United States of America. It is Wednesday, January 6, 2021. A historic election campaign has divided the country. Now, US congressmen are gathered in parliament at the Capitol. They are about to approve the election result and declare Joe Biden the winner of the presidential election.
Meanwhile, less than a mile away, the outgoing Donald Trump is speaking. Thousands of his followers are gathered. Power has been stolen, Trump repeats from the rostrum. He urges the crowd to march towards Capitol to protest. A few hours later, 5 people are killed and 141 wounded.
With Trump's political godfather, Roger Stone, as the film's central character the film documents how Trump's presidential period had to find its logical end point in The Storm at the Capitol.
