During the turbulent times of the Great Depression and World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt presided over great changes in America and the world - changes that would have been impossible without the efforts of one extraordinary man - FDR's friend and advisor, Harry Hopkins.
The son of a harness maker from Iowa and for 20 years a social worker in New York, Hopkins was invited by Roosevelt to head the Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression. Within four weeks, he had put four million people to work. He went on to help Roosevelt establish numerous federal programs that live on today. Despite failing health, he made his greatest impact during World War II. He was Roosevelt's personal envoy to Winston Churchill, executing the Lend-Lease program and helping the country mobilize for war. His unique relationship to Roosevelt, Churchill, and Stalin contributed to forging agreements at Teheran and Yalta.
This award-winning film shows how one man's unshakable belief in America and in public service was so vital to his country. It is also a tale of grand adventure and dangerous wartime missions executed at great risk.
