This biographical short film was shown at the 2004 Democratic National Convention as an introduction to the presidential candidate, John Kerry. Narrated by Morgan Freeman, the film includes never-before-seen 8mm childhood home movies and exclusive footage of Kerry's campaign tour.

The film features interviews with family and friends who talk about the courage John Kerry has shown as a soldier and a veteran, the fights he has waged for middle-class values, and the faith in family he has exhibited as a father and husband.
