After resigning as a Congressman over a sexting scandal in 2011, Anthony Weiner mounted a political comeback two years later running for mayor of New York City. Filmmaker Josh Kriegman (Weiner’s former staffer) partners with Elyse Steinberg to gain close access to the campaign’s inner circle, including Weiner’s wife Huma Abedin, one of Hillary Clinton’s top aides. When a fresh sexting scandal breaks out, we witness a major act of crisis management from the inside. Courtesy of IFC Films and Showtime.
