This probing documentary from Carl Coby investigates a figure at once cloaked in mystery and close to his heart: his father, CIA operative William Coby. From his father's early career parachuting into Europe during WWII, to election tampering in Italy, to the controversial Phoenix Program during Vietnam, Coby's father's exploits are studied in depth, sometime for the first time ever, with a mix of professional and personal insight.
