With an unprecedented level of access to the inner workings of the White House, The Final Yeartakes you behind the scenes of Barack Obama’s last 12 months in office: a time that eerily already feels like ancient history. A testament to how advocates for change can make a difference, Obama and his foreign policy team, including Secretary of State John Kerry and UN Ambassador Samantha Power, work around-the-clock to try and bring their goals for the country to fruition against a constant series of obstacles. With time running out on their term in office, the stakes and urgency rise everyday as a different course for America’s future catches them by surprise and threatens everything they stand for.
