Documentary Anthony Weiner's fall from grace was one of the most spectacular in US political history. In 2011, he sent a revealing photo not as intended to an online lover, but to all 56,000 of his followers on Twitter. Weiner hit rock bottom, even Barack Obama recommended he resign. His wife Huma Abedin was a close adviser to Hillary Clinton and at the time stood by her man. In 2013, she stood by him again as the former Democrat torch-bearer started a spectacular attempt at a comeback, standing for the office of Mayor of New York City. The film accompanies the couple during an election campaign designed to put the apparently reformed character back in pole position. Then new sex pictures turn up. This extremely intimate portrait allows unprecedented insights into the business of US politics and the inner workings of a marriage
