This biographical documentary tells the story of William Scranton, who lived a life of public service that made him a witness to history in the 20th century. During a career that spanned almost four decades he served Pennsylvania as an innovative Congressman and Governor. His guiding star has always been his family and his home outside of Scranton, PA.
