The first trailer for Netflix original documentary “MITT” teases a sympathetic and, most importantly, human look at 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

Director Greg Whiteley (“Resolved”) filmed the former Massachusetts governor for six years, and captured the moment Romney knew he was going to lose the close election to President Barack Obama.

“So what do you think you say in a concession speech?” Romney asks his distraught kids who “can’t believe” their dad is going to lose.

“If you don’t win, we’ll still love you,” son Tagg Romney says. “The country may think of you as a laughing stock, and we’ll know the truth. And that’s okay.”

Audiences that want unprecedented access to the Republican politician throughout his entire campaign, including all of the ups and downs that he faces along the way, can find out on Jan. 24 if there really is any truth they were missing out on when it came time to cast their vote.

It will certainly be interesting to hear what he has to say about his infamous 47 percent remarks.
