Porter uses rare archival footage and new interviews with the late U.S. Rep. John Lewis to tell his story from childhood to his legislative career. Of course, his social activism takes center stage and gives viewers an intimate look into Lewis’s inspiring family and fateful meeting with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. in 1957. Lewis was an exemplar in the fight for civil rights, voting rights, gun control, health care reform, and immigration. The documentary shows what can be accomplished when a person gets into “good trouble.”
