The film also features interviews with family, friends, colleagues and leading political figures.
Senator McCain’s recent battle with brain cancer underscores his fighting spirit and resilience as he continues to crusade for the causes he believes in, despite advancing health issues and daunting odds. What emerges is a portrait of an American maverick who has kept his eye on the most important American goals.
