    This documentary will draw a well-documented assessment of Barack Obama’s first term. If his election will clearly go down in history, his first term has been a very tough one! Since taking office, Obama has had to confront economic crisis as well as an opposition determined to discredit him and destroy his agenda. Obama has been forced to adapt his governing style, and to rein in his ambitions for change. The film will take us behind the scenes of those battles using interviews with Barack Obama’s main advisors and leading political analysts.
