The film is based on three extensive interviews with the first and only president of the USSR, Mikhail Gorbachev. He tells the story of his life, from his childhood in a Stavropol village to his retirement, including shots from newsreels and comments from the former President of Poland Lech Walesa; the last President of the Hungarian People’s Republic, Miklos Nemeth; the United States Secretary of State under President Ronald Reagan, George Shultz; and advisor to Helmut Kohl, Horst Teltschik. Legendary director Werner Herzog and his co-author Andre Singer give audiences the opportunity to reassess the landmark events that Gorbachev initiated and think about how sharply and unpredictably the world changes before our eyes.
