When Femi Jackson, the financial director for a Democratic super PAC behind a frontrunner presidential candidate, discovers unusual patterns in donations, he enlists investment blogger Ira Goldstein to dig deeper. As Femi’s wife Maria strives to educate their son on the dangers he will face in modern society while she fights racial and classist bias at work, Femi and Ira follow the campaign money trail back to its nefarious origins in a race to uncover the truth before the presidential primaries.
88 investigates the divergence of race, money, power, and politics through the lens of a black family.
