As one of the most popular pop groups of the 1970s, brother-and-sister duo the Carpenters (Richard and Karen Carpenter) enjoyed a string of era-defining hits, among them "We've Only Just Begun" and "Close to You." In time, however, the demands of fame and image exacted a tragic cost -- as both siblings allegedly struggled with drug addiction, and Karen developed the anorexia nervosa that eventually claimed her life in February 1983. This documentary draws on a series of interviews with music critics and historians in an attempt to cut through the rumors surrounding the duo's history and provide an accurate, definitive chronicle.
