41 storytellers weave a multidimensional profile of President George H. W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States. Their anecdotes enlighten not only his historic policy decision, but also insightful personal life experiences told by those closest to him. These storytellers, led by First Lady Barbara Bush, range from family members, world leaders, sports figures, White House staff, to celebrities, and more. Executive Producers, former White House speechwriter Mary Kate Cary and renowned journalist Rick Kaplan, incorporate never-before-seen footage from the George Bush Presidential Library and Museum and family photos to bolster this intimate account of George H. W. Bush as an influential political leader, and also as a husband, father, and friend. Discussion with Executive Producer Mary Kate Cary, Andrew Card, Marlin Fitzwater, and Barbara Perry (U.Va.)
