Relying on the correspondence between the second U.S. president, John Adams (1735–1826), and his wife Abigail Adams (1744–1818), this biographic documentary, directed by Peter Jones, sheds light on the characters of two remarkable people, their relationship, and the tumultuous times through which they lived. The film provides an intimate look inside a marriage of companions, for whom life included the great events of history, but also laughter, affection and family tragedy.
