A quest for the real Sarah Palin that involves battling the icy snows of Alaska in mid winter

This is Nick Broomfield's quest for the real Sarah Palin. It involves battling the icy snows of Alaska in mid winter, the school friends, family, and Republican colleagues that in previous days gave their heart, soul and belief, to the charismatic, charming, intoxicating ex hockey mum. But it's not all plain sailing. People are frightened to talk, Wasilla makes Twin Peaks look like a walk in the park. It's a devout evangelical community: 76 churches with a population of 6 thousand, and the Crystal meth capitol of Alaska. An Alaskan pastor characterizes her faith as 'apocalyptic Christian' and elaborates, 'She has no hesitancy to use violence against evil...Until you understand that, I don’t think you understand Sarah Palin.'
