Hugo Chavez was the president of Venezuela for 14 years when he anointed Nicolas Maduro as his political heir. After Chavez’s death, Maduro became president. When the Supreme Court decided to strip the National Assembly of its powers, massive violence erupted. Under the polarizing political unrest that has gripped this once prosperous nation, lay hundreds dead and injured, mass arrests and horrific poverty. The Broken Country reaches out to voices from across the political spectrum and puts them on an equal footing as they make their way through the remains of a crumbling administration.
