Synopsis by Mark Deming

Few performers in pop music have enjoyed the career longevity of Paul Anka, who first rose to fame as a teen idol when he scored a hit single with the song "Diana" in 1957 (he was 15 at the time), and today has distinguished himself as a vocalist, songwriter, actor, and business mogul. Destiny: The Life and Times of Paul Anka is a documentary on this legendary star which contrasts footage (drawn from the acclaimed 1962 film Lonely Boy) from his teenaged days with Anka as he is today: minding his business affairs, working on new recordings, visiting with friends and family, and preparing for a special homecoming concert in Ottawa, Canada.
