As directed by Tom Weber, this ambitious music-themed documentary explores the vastly underappreciated genre of folk-pop, by profiling such gifted singer-songwriters as Mary Gauthier, Chris Smither, Dave Alvin, Slaid Cleaves and Peter Case. The film interpolates rare performance footage of 40 songs by the said acts and many of their contemporaries, intercut with candid interviews wherein the artists reflect on such topics as songwriting, interaction with audiences, and the music business in general.
