Summary This documentary charts the story of a poor Scottish immigrant who sailed to America in the 1840s, and by the end of the century would be the richest man in the world. Criticized for the harsh business practices that allowed him to dominate the iron and steel industries, and praised for his quest to give all his money away, Andrew Carnegie is undeniably one of the most fascinating and contradictory figures in modern history. This documentary reveals the untold story of a man with incredible vision, whose dream of a world without conflict ended in tatters and led him to die a broken man. Nominated for Best Documentary at the **Edinburgh International Film Festival.**
