History was made when Barack Obama was sworn in as the President of the United States. This documentary is about the moments that led up to that historic occasion.
We get an inside look at the man who became the first African-American leader of the world's most influential nation. How he and his loyal campaigners made that happen is the focus. The perspective of the documentary is to show us the day-to-day grind of running for president. There is an astonishing amount of work that goes on behind the scenes to make it happen. You get to see the emotional commitment made by those who worked the campaign.
Much of the footage in this documentary has never been seen before. You get a fly on the wall perspective of the man and his campaign for president. Using interviews, candid moments with his family, footage of campaign staff, supporters, reporters and even his opponents the directors make a picture of the campaign for presidency of a man who now has the burden of leading his country out of economic despair and towards a better future.
