Plot Summary

In 1930s Hudson Valley, Margaret "Daisy" Suckley is reacquainted with her distant cousin, President Franklin D. Roosevelt, to help him relax at his family estate. That aid soon develops into much more as they become lovers. That puts Daisy in a unique position as Roosevelt receives the King and Queen of Britain in 1939 for a visit. As the Royal couple copes with the President's oddly plebeian arrangements, Daisy learns that there is far more to Roosevelt's life than she realized. With the world about to be set ablaze by war, friendships are struck and perspectives are gained on that special weekend that would make all the difference with a great, but very human, president. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia The make and model of the real life car that Democrat President Franklin D. Roosevelt drove with the special hand controls, was a 1936 Ford Phaeton, and it is on display at the "FDR Presidential Library & Museum" in Hyde Park, New York State, USA. See more »
Goofs When FDR calls for an end to Ish-ti-opi's ceremonial dance, Eleanor Roosevelt invites everyone to thank Ish-ti-opi in Cherokee. Ish-ti-opi (a.k.a., Wesley L. Robertson) was a Choctaw Indian, not a Cherokee. In any event, the word "yakoke" used for "thank you" is correctly Choctaw, not Cherokee. The Cherokee words for "thank you" are "wado" and "s'gi".
