First Lady of the Revolution tells the remarkable story of Henrietta Boggs, a young Alabaman who fell in love with a foreign land and the man destined to transform its identity. Her marriage to Jose 'Don Pepe' Figueres in 1941 led to a journey of activism, exile, political upheaval and, ultimately, lasting progressive reforms. This unforgettable documentary depicts the momentous struggle to shape Costa Rica's democratic identity, and portrays a courageous woman escaping the confines of a traditional, sheltered existence to expand her horizons into a new world.
