Synopsis

A riveting feature documentary based on the ground-breaking new book by Pulitzer-Prize winner Samantha Power, Sergio will use the inspiring, rigorous and tragic life of Sergio Vieira de Mello, the UN envoy to Iraq who died in the first suicide bombing of the war, to engage the public in a conversation about the principles that should guide US foreign policy into the 21st Century. Vieira de Mello, a relatively unknown hero who deserves wider recognition, devoted his life to the ideals of diplomacy, security, the rule of law, and the fundamental right of people to live in dignity. Sergio is the story of the day those ideals came under attack, and why they must be preserved.
