What happens to the 705 residents of Crawford, Texas when George W. Bush moves to town?

Crawford's characters are by turns bizarre, entertaining and tragic. Shoved into the spotlight for political stagecraft, their insular town explodes, pushing a progressive teacher and her student to the brink — and beyond. Invaded and abandoned, Crawford booms and busts, like the Presidency itself.

Told through the eyes of Crawford's characters, this is a fun, funny, and ultimately moving story. CRAWFORD is a microcosm of the Bush era — a feature-length documentary that offers a new and colorful way of looking at the last seven years.
