Presidential historian Michael Beschloss' candid interview with former first lady Betty Ford serves as the centerpiece of this film exploring the life and career of a woman who never shied away from controversy. When Gerald Ford first came into the White House, the American public was still reeling from Richard Nixon and the Watergate Scandal. By encouraging the American public to discuss issues that had historically been swept under the rug, Ford ushered in a new era of honesty and personal accountability. In this documentary, archival photos and film clips combine with new footage shot around Ford's home in Rancho Mirage, Texas to create the definitive account of her lasting legacy.
