WHAT’S IT ABOUT?
We see the life of celebrated singer Amy Winehouse through archival footage from her early years until her death in 2011 from alcohol intoxication. Members of her family and her professional collaborators are heard giving their views on her and her music, some of which went unreleased, as well as her much-publicised drug and alcohol addiction…
