Kathryn Ferguson's Sundance-premiered directorial debut is a powerful exploration of singer-songwriter Sinead O'Connor's iconoclastic career and her enduring cultural impact. By age 20, O'Connor was one of Ireland's brightest rising stars, but her decision to use her fame as a platform to speak out on a number of controversial issues shifted her narrative from global stardom to worldwide condemnation. In new interviews, O'Connor reveals the abusive upbringing that left her feeling betrayed by both church and community and that ultimately led her to find the therapeutic power of music.
