Synopsis

Angela Merkel is often described as the new Iron Lady and referred to as “mother”. But who is this woman? What are the facts behind her story?

Interviews with childhood friends, long time companions, business executives and global political leaders reveal how an East German daughter of a protestant pastor worked her way up to become the most powerful woman on the planet. Her modesty combined with strong will and strategic approach left many to underestimate Angela Merkel and thus paving the way for her rise to power.
