In this David and Goliath tale, a group of proud Scottish homeowners take on Donald Trump, as he gets set to destroy the crown jewels of Scotland's natural heritage in order to build a luxury golf resort. We follow the local residents as they make their last stand in the face of harassment, constant legal threats and the cutting off of their water and electricity supplies.
YOU'VE BEEN TRUMPED captures the cultural chasm between the glamorous, jet—setting and media savvy Donald Trump and a deeply rooted Scottish community. For the tycoon, the golf course is just another deal, with a possible billion—dollar payoff. For the residents, it represents the destruction of a globally unique landscape that has been the backdrop of their lives.
