A STORM FORETOLD sheds light on Trump's 2020 political campaign and the violent storming of the Capitol by closely following Roger Stone, Trump's political godfather. The documentary reveals the significant influence this controversial character has over American politics.

The astonishing footage collected by director Christoffer Guldbrandsen offers a glimpse behind the scenes of Trump's last political campaign. The director sets out to follow the «Make America Great Again» movement and becomes a close witness to the historical events at the heart of the American democracy, developing a personal relationship with key figures and getting increasingly involved in Trump's advisor’s daily life. The documentary brilliantly presents the events and characters without passing judgment, letting the footage tell its own highly relevant story in today's politics.
