For the past 40 years, the race for the American Presidency has begun in the state of Iowa, where candidates spend months traveling the state's 99 counties hoping to win its "first-in-the-nation" vote and prove themselves a viable candidate.

CAUCUS tells the story of the 2011-2012 campaign in Iowa as eight Republicans fight to become their party's standard-bearer and take on Barack Obama. But to win, each has to first navigate state fairs, town hall meetings in pizza halls and agitated questions from the increasingly contentious GOP base.

A never-before-seen look at an unforgettable political season, CAUCUS re-introduces viewers to the remarkable and unorthodox GOP field with special focus on former Senator Rick Santorum - the working-class, social conservative warrior with no money and little operational support - as he tries to win the 2012 Iowa Caucus the old-fashioned way, by going town-to-town, meeting voters one-on-one, campaigning in a pick-up truck, and Representative Michele Bachmann - the charismatic Congresswoman and self-proclaimed Tea Party leader, who was born in Iowa and forms an instant connection with the religious and fiscal conservatives who still live there. Both would fight to stay relevant in a contest where nearly every candidate would lead the race at some point - the Governor of Texas, the former U.S. House Speaker, a former pizza chain CEO and the presumed national frontrunner that no one seems particularly enthusiastic about.

From Bachmann's greatest triumph - her victory in the summer's Ames Straw Poll - to the long autumn where her popularity plummeted and tracking the slow rise of Santorum, in his own persistent battle for attention against all odds and mountains of super-PAC cash, CAUCUS is both a postmortem on the 2012 campaign, and a glimpse at the challenges that the Republican party finds themselves still facing a year later.
