The two filmmakers noticed Barack Obama, the senator with a spark in his eye, a year before he launched his candidacy for President of the United States. Even before it was clear that he would run in 2007, the crew was given exclusive access to his everyday life. As a result, the film shows all the things needed for winning, including the effort put in by his family members, volunteers, and campaign staff.
