Summary
Depicts the extraordinary life and times of one of America's least understood, and most underestimated, founding fathers: the second President of the United States, John Adams. Explores the extraordinary life journey of one of the primary shapers of our independence and government, whose legacy has often been eclipsed by more flamboyant contemporaries. Set against the backdrop of a nation's stormy birth, it's a moving love story which celebrates the shared values of liberty and freedom upon which this country was built
