What are the costs of the half-truths that politicians tell? In 2012, the Georgian president in the race for re-election, promised subsidized dental care to the country's least well off. As medical practitioners began removing rotten teeth with the promise of replacements in the months that followed, the president lost. Smiling Georgia tells a story about the whims of political power and the defiance of those who usually hold the least of it.
