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.
