The Price of Kings is a groundbreaking documentary series that brings unprecedented access to some of the most controversial, influential and powerful leaders of our time. Through exclusive interviews and archival footage, the third film in this series takes an in-depth look at twice serving president of Costa Rica and Nobel Peace Prize laureate Oscar Arias Sanchez.

From an early age Oscar Arias Sanchez knew he wanted to become president and embarked on a political career in 1970 as assistant to former President José Figueres. Arias went on to serve two terms as President and in 1987 was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

Arias played a crucial role in bringing together presidents of Nicaragua, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras, establishing a framework for economic cooperation, peaceful conflict resolution and free and democratic elections across the region.
