The second trailer for What's the Matter with Kansas?.

Based on the best-selling book by Thomas Frank, "What's the Matter with Kansas?" plunges deep into the heart of Middle America, offering an intimate portrait of the heartland conservatives who twice elected George W. Bush.

Angel Dillard helps run the most popular booth at the Kansas State Fair: Kansans For Life. She's a lifelong Republican activist.

Brittany Barden is a tireless veteran of several rounds of Republican campaigns. Her mission is to return America to its roots as “a Christian nation.” She’s 18 years old.

Donn Teske describes himself as “a red-neck Kansas farmer.” He also says corporate greed is “not very Christian.” He fights to save his family farm and others like it.

Angel and Brittany both attend Terry Fox’s 6,000-member Immanuel Baptist Church in Wichita. Fox thunders from his pulpit denouncements of gay marriage, abortion and liberal politicians. He urges his flock to vote on the eve of the midterm elections.

Then, the winds of change blow across Kansas.

Terry Fox resigns his church and starts holding sermons at an amusement park. Will his flock remain faithful?

Kansas Republicans start to lose elections – will Brittany stay committed to the cause?

Donn gets invited to speak before Congress – what will he tell them?

Keep watching – you’ll be surprised who you’re rooting for…
