Awarding the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize to U.S. President Barack Obama may be the Nobel committee's most controversial decision of all time. This program examines the choice and its implications, as well as the background, accomplishments, and potential of the recipient. Produced by the Nobel Foundation, the film outlines Obama's diverse heritage and formative experiences, compiles opinions from a broad spectrum of political players, and assesses the 44th President's evolving foreign policy. Interviews feature Susan Rice, U.S. Representative to the UN; David Frum, speechwriter for President George W. Bush; Thorbjorn Jagland, Chairman of the Norwegian Nobel Committee; and others. Excerpts from Obama's September 2009 speech to the UN General Assembly and June 2009 speech at Cairo University are also included.
