An intimate portrayal of Kate Nash, a former pop sensation, who gave up money and fame to speak up about inequalities in the music industry.

“This is a matter of life and death to me because making music keeps me alive. And being in the music industry has almost killed me,” concludes the British singer-songwriter Kate Nash early on. She is referring to a predominantly white male music industry who made a lot of money off her, overworked her and dropped her when she started making music on her own terms. Nash self-funds her third album, organizes a successful world tour and relocates to Los Angeles for more opportunities, including acting. She is doing it all for her music, and for her fans. But what this creative powerhouse did not foresee was that even people she thought she could trust would stab her in the back. This intimate portrait follows Nash over the course of several years as she attempts to remain creatively independent, while still being able to pay the rent.
