Sexts, lies, and Carlos Danger: watch the wildest political meltdown in recent history as it unfolds.

It’s 2013 and Anthony Weiner—still reeling from the sex scandal that ended his political career two years earlier—is back in the spotlight as he mounts an audacious comeback campaign for New York City mayor.

But it’s not long before history repeats itself and new sexting allegations leave Weiner and his aides scrambling to contain the damage.

Granted unfettered access to the candidate and his campaign, filmmakers Josh Kriegman and Elyse Steinberg capture a jaw-dropping, behind-the-scenes look at the political machine as it breaks down. 

"HILARIOUS. One of the best documentaries ever made about a political scandal."

"FIVE STARS. A gift that keeps on giving. A compelling, deep dive into a scandal."
