Synopsis by Augustine Chay

Co-directors and co-writers Martha Kehoe and Joan Tosoni’s music documentary examines the life and legacy of Canadian folk-rock singer-songwriter and guitarist Gordon Lightfoot. It traces his career arc from small town Ontario in the 1950s to Greenwich Village in the 60s and his arena-filling fame in the 70s with interviews with Lightfoot, contemporaries like Ian and Sylvia Tyson, Randy Bachman, and Steve Earle, and famous admirers like Alec Baldwin, Anne Murray and Sarah McLachlan.
