Apart from symbolizing a strong First Lady, Hillary's remarkable story in this documentary shows how she's provoked strong reactions all her life. Starting as a conservative Goldwater girl in the early '60s, she evolved into a campus activist at Wellesley College, then feminist law student at Yale, where she met the man who would become her husband, and eventually the nation's president.

Told through narrative and revealing interviews with relatives and long-time friends (like Mary Steenburgen), this presentation examines the turning points in her life, portraying a woman both ambitious and ardent in controversial causes.
