Chip away at the myth to reveal a man whose personal tragedies drove him to achieve feats many only dream about as Academy-Award-winning producer Vikram Jayanti explores the life of American President Abraham Lincoln - the self-proclaimed "loneliest man in the world." By utilizing detailed interviews with such widely-acclaimed Lincoln biographers as Harold Holzer, Gore Vidal, Jan Morris, and The Noonday Demon: An Atlas of Depression author Andrew Solomon, Jayanti brings to light the sorrowful side of America's sixteenth president from a fresh and compelling angle.
