Janet Rosenberg Jagan, the filmmaker's cousin, was elected Guyana's president in 1997, becoming the first American-born woman to lead a nation.

This film weaves family history and Guyanese history with the extraordinary life story of this unconventional woman, who, along with her husband, Cheddi Jagan, is considered to be one of the founders of Guyana. (CC, Stereo)
