Can the UN defend world peace at a time of world conflict? To find out, join award-winning filmmaker David Grubin for an unprecedented look at the man charged with defending the UN's ideals -- Secretary-General Kofi Annan. Working with an unobtrusive mini-DV camera, Grubin and his team joined Annan as he flew to Afghanistan to encourage reconstruction efforts, to Norway to accept the Nobel Prize, and to East Timor to declare its independence. Cameras are even on hand when the Secretary-General travels to Sesame St. to teach conflict resolution to the world's next generation. The result? Ninety minutes of frank interviews and intimate behind-the-scenes episodes that provide unforgettable insight into a world leader at the center of the storm.
