Charismatic, charming and complex, Sergio Vieira de Mello was the world's go-to guy, a man who could descend into the most dangerous places, charm the worst war criminals, and somehow protect the lives of the ordinary people to whom he'd devoted his life. SERGIO tells the gripping, inspiring story of his most treacherous mission ever...a mission in which his own life hangs in the balance.
SERGIO is based on Pulitzer Prize-winner Samantha Power's groundbreaking biography, Chasing the Flame: Sergio Vieira de Mello and the Fight to Save the World.
