No, that’s not a banana in my pocket – it’s a Weiner!

Everything seemed to go Anthony Weiner’s way. His political star was on the rise, he’d distinguished himself as a Democratic congressman and his equally brilliant wife Huma Abedin was expecting their first child. But as evidence surfaced that he had been sending explicit pictures of himself to several women, it all came undone. Two years after resigning from congress, Weiner decides to run for mayor of New York and in this hilarious documentary we follow his clumsy and highly improbable bid for a second chance in politics.
