Following the Rose Revolution, the husband of Dutch Sandra Roelofs became president of Georgia. In her last year as the first lady, Roelofs is being followed both in and outside the spotlights. Candidly, this woman from Zeeland talks about her love for the country and her spouse, the reasons why they drifted apart over the years and their diverging opinions about his style of government. The scenes with the president underline Roelofs’ objections and sharply contrast with her purely private world, which she divulges a great deal of.
