Together with her sister Dolly, Shirley Collins was at the centre of a revival in British folk music in the 1960s and 70s. But in 1980 she developed a disorder of the vocal chords, robbing her of her remarkable, unique singing voice, and forcing her into early retirement. This documentary tells her life story, making use of audio-archive from a seminal road trip she made across America’s Deep South in 1959, collecting songs and developing her creative voice. These recordings are balanced against footage of Shirley attempting to rediscover her voice today, and suggests that in uncertain, turbulent times, her wisdom might be needed now more than ever.
