    Through an intimate portrait of Luxembourg's Foreign Minister Jean Asselborn, this film gives rare insight to the inner workings of the international stage. With remarkable access to the political process and an elegant cinematic style, this documentary offers a sober look at the complexities of global politics, as well as moments of comic relief in its wry observations on diplomacy and the life of a politician.

    "Of course, this won't be easy." Relaxing at home in his shorts and loafers, Jean picks up the phone to Austrian President Heinz Fischer to discuss the problem of ISIS in the Middle East. In this casual setting, one could be forgiven for underestimating the gravity of the discussion at hand, which becomes clear as Jean starts relating his impressions from a recent diplomatic mission: "I believe this to be the greatest challenge for the Arab world."

    In this demanding position one is never off duty, and informal chats soon become politically charged. Indeed, the rapport on a personal and a political level can be hard to untangle. In discussion with EU president Jean Claude Juncker, the conversation moves from the Tour de France to, "so what do you think about Greece?" within the space of a sentence.

    As we follow him from Iran, to Russia, to Brussels, to India, the life and work of a Foreign Minister is revealed to be as difficult as it is fascinating. With meticulous cinematography, this crafted documentary lays open the often oblique world of international relations.
