Daniel Patrick Moynihan (1927-2003) was a seminal public intellectual and sociologist, policy specialist, ambassador and long serving senator. Since his death, Moynihan's work has frequently been misinterpreted by both the left and the right. In Moynihan, a remarkable array of figures, including Ta-Nehisi Coates, Eleanor Holmes Norton, George Will, and Henry Kissinger give insight into this "connoisseur of statistics" who served four presidents, anticipated the breakup of the Soviet Union, and was as comfortable writing about philosophy, ethnicity, and architecture as he was rethinking the Social Security and welfare systems. By clarifying Moynihan's thought and offering it to a new generation - for whom he largely remains unknown - the film offers an all-too-timely perspective on today's debates over the issues that Moynihan began tackling over 50 years ago.
