Empowerment expert Helene Lerner, host and executive producer of numerous Emmy winning public television specials, reveals the keys to "authentic power" in this dynamic documentary. Based on Lerner's book about personal reinvention, it encourages women to believe in themselves and pursue even their most intimidating and inconvenient dreams. The special features insights from actors Julianne Moore, Jamie Lee Curtis and Jane Seymour, Xerox CEO Ursula Burns and other inspiring self-made women. Accepting the discomfort of change, embracing one's unique talents, letting go of false beliefs and building a "power web" of support, Learner believes,helps women move through fear and uncertainty. To illustrate her points, Lerner leads a heartfelt discussion among four women who have faced distinct personal obstacles and altered the course of their lives.
