Two-time Academy Award® winner Barbara Kopple (HARLAN COUNTY USA) shines a powerful, inspiring and entertaining spotlight on contemporary soul queen Sharon Jones. After years in obscurity and being told she was “too black, too short, too old," Sharon finally broke-through in her forties and has been hailed as a modern-day female James Brown. Then as she prepared to release her much-anticipated new album, Sharon came face-to-face with the greatest challenge of her life: a grave cancer diagnosis. Follow this tour de force over the course of an eventful and remarkable year as she struggles to hold her band The Dap Kings together while battling her way back to the stage with the unstoppable determination of a true soul survivor.
