Her unique relative is her unknown uncle Paul, a veteran of Vietnam War that cut relationships with his family and is bigot and paranoid. Paul lives in a surveillance van, lives as if he were a secret agent, sees conspiracy and terrorist cells everywhere, and has a great prejudice against Arabs and other non-American breeds after the September, 11th. They meet each other, and when they see the murder of a poor Pakistanis nearby the mission, they travel together to the small town of Trone to deliver his corpse to the family, where Paul sees a different reality.

Watch Land of Plenty - Alternative Versions.
I saw this film at a pre-screening, and apparently it was several
minutes longer than the theater release. In any case, it is
unquestionably the most intelligent, sensitive and understanding look
at the consequences of Sept 11 on the mentality of individuals in the
US I have seen.
To place myself on the political spectrum, I'm an American and a
fervent opponent of the policies of George W Bush.
The film looks at the psychological damage inflicted upon a broad
spectrum of Americans (from young leftist humanitarian activists to
mentally unstable right-wing militia-types) with an understanding and
an acceptance which goes far beyond political debates to look at the
consequences of 9-11 on Americans as individuals - something done by no
other film I have seen with the possible exception of Sean Penn's short
film in the anthology "9-11".
What astonished me most about the film was that a non-American like
Wenders could have such a profound understanding of the American
psyche. Wenders looks at America without aggression, without anger,
without a shred of intolerance - but with affection, understanding and
an appreciation for the damage done by 9-11.
Personally I felt a tremendous amount of frustration throughout the
first 2/3rds of the film. It wasn't enough of an anti-war statement for
my tastes. But by the end, the much greater depth of the message this
film carries had penetrated my left-wing reactionary preconceptions and
I felt - to put it simply - that Wenders had shown me my own self. The
message is universal, powerful, and tolerant in the extreme.
If your opinions are strong concerning 9-11, the 2nd gulf war, or the
homeland security program and it's consequence - no matter what side of
the fence you sit on - you should see this film. If you can watch it
with an open mind, you might find the world and America are both a
better place for it.
Thank you, Mr. Wenders. You're brilliant.
