The documentary takes the new political leader of NATO back to his roots.

The former Danish Prime Minister talks about the strict admonitions from his father at the dinner table, the first heated political speeches and the ups and downs that come with a life in politics.

Join the former Danish Prime Minister and newly appointed General Secretary of NATO in a journey back to a childhood of sparse conditions and hard work. Join Anders Fogh Rasmussen in retracing his own steps.
