" He came from out of nowhere to win the presidency. Four years later, he returned to private life, but he has since secured the respect that escaped him when he was in office.Jimmy Carter went from the small town of Plains, Georgia to the highest office in the land. Ironically, it has been in his post-presidential years that he has won the most respect for his dedication to building decent housing and in his diplomatic missions to the world's trouble spots. Trace the life of the man who engineered the Camp David Accords and who recognized the energy crisis as a serious issue, yet whose administration seemed incapable of shedding its reputation as a bunch of appealing but bumbling rubes. Extensive footage documents his political career, and in a wide-ranging interview, Carter himself talks about his background, accomplishments and regrets.This is a balanced look at the man who is probably the most successful ex-president in American history."
