Description

Two-time Academy Award winner Barbara Kopple shines a powerful, inspiring and entertaining spotlight on the legendary R&B queen Sharon Jones, one of the most fiery and talented performers working today whose wonder is a force to behold both on and off stage. Hailed as a modern-day female James Brown, on 2014, on the eve of the band launching a new album and as she prepares for her most important tour, she comes face-to-face with the most difficult adversity of her life: a diagnosis with cancer hat brings her career to a stand still. Follow this tour de force over the course of an eventful year as she struggles to hold her band The Dap Kings together while battling her diagnosis with an unstoppable determination. Filled with incredible performances, laughs, tears and plenty of inspiration.
