When presidential candidate George McGovern took on incumbent Richard Nixon in 1972, no one really expected him to win - and he didn't. But in his bold, grassroots, seat-of-the-pants campaign, which energized young and progressive Americans to a degree never before seen, we find the genesis of today's powerful and sophisticated progressive movement. Using a wealth of amazing archival interviews with provocative figures including historian Howard Zinn, and extensive interviews with McGovern himself, this film pays tribute to a man "who could have dramatically and permanently altered America's political landscape for the better" (CBS Radio). Includes music by Bob Dylan, Robbie Robertson, Elvis Costello and Leon Russel.
