Directed by D.A. Pennebaker (Don't Look Back), this is a close look at the life and career of Jerry Lee Lewis, a man whose life seemed to mirror the flavor and content of the songs he chose to sing. Full-length performances are woven with segments detailing his rise and ultimate fall from rock stardom, culminating with his marriage to his 13-year-old cousin. Lewis performs 13 of his classic hits, captured during a 1969 performance.
