Netflix has released the trailer for the much-anticipated documentary “Mitt,” based on the six years leading up to Mitt Romney’s loss in the 2012 presidential race against President Obama.

“‘Mitt’ is a rare and intimate account of one man’s quest for the presidency,” a Netflix description of the documentary reads. “Given unprecedented access by Mitt Romney and his family for six years, Mitt follows the former governor’s presidential aspirations, from Christmas 2006 to his initial run to become the Republican nominee in 2008 and through his Presidential concession speech in 2012.”

The trailer shows certain candid moment’s in the former Massachusetts governor’s career.

“I just can’t believe you’re going to lose,” one of his sons is overheard saying on the night Mr. Romney lost to the president.

“Yeah … so, what do you think you say in a concession speech?” the defeated candidate says. “By the way, does somebody have a number for the President?”

The film, directed by Greg Whiteley, is set to premiere on Jan. 24.
