In the summer of 1921, unsuccessful vice-presidential candidate Franklin Delano Roosevelt (Ralph Bellamy) is vacationing with his family at their estate on Campobello Island on the Maine/New Brunswick border. During their stay, the 39-year-old Roosevelt comes down with a fever and sudden paralysis that is eventually diagnosed as polio. With the help of his wife, Eleanor (Greer Garson), and his close friend and political consultant, Louis Howe (Hume Cronyn), FDR battles his newfound disability.
