Famed British singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse was found dead of alcohol poisoning on July 2011 in her Camden, London residence. Since that time her fame has skyrocketed, piquing public interest about the life of the deceased celebrity. This documentary is an in-depth look at that life. The film begins in 1998 with a teenage Winehouse singing at the birthday party of a friend. That is only part of the story. Her musical story began long before that. Music was a lifelong love. The documentary looks at her life from early childhood, to finding public fame in her musical career beginning in 2003, and beyond.

The film also chronicles her personal struggles with bulimia nervosa, drugs, and alcoholism. Along the way you will see portions of over 100 interviews of Winehouse’ family and friends.
