Jonathan Demme followed Jimmy Carter during the promotional tour for his book, "Palestine Peace not Apartheid." There was no hidden agenda, just documentation of the former president while he travelled around the country, on talk shows, giving lectures, and at book signings. The title of the book created controversy, especially by reviewers who apparently did not read it or mis-read the content. In the midst of it all, Carter remained unflappable.

The film opens with Carter's mother, Lillian, on the Johnny Carson show. You know where her son's spunk came from. He talks about growing up in Plains, a farmer and rancher, trained as a physicist. There is an excerpt from a meeting of The Carter Center and building a home in the Habitat for Humanity program. That he remains true to himself is a testament to his strength.
