This powerful, poignant film takes us into one of the great minds of politics; Graham Freudenberg's words have shaped our fortunes. With stories from Wran, Whitlam, Hawke and Carr, and reflections on contemporary politics, we are given the chance to share the unique perspective of someone who was at the epicentre of Australian government for nearly 50 years. It's a remarkable picture of an insider's love of language - and its power to change the country.
