The story of Franklin Roosevelt's bout with polio at age 39 in 1921 and how his family (and especially wife Eleanor) cope with his illness. From being stricken while vacationing at Campobello to his triumphant nominating speech for Al Smith's presidency in 1924, the story follows the various influences on his life and his determination to recover - based on the award winning Broadway play of the same name.
Even if you never heard his name...Even if this whole story was make-believe...you'll not soon forget this drama of devotion, this laughter through tears, this motion picture of motion pictures...
