At the age of eighty-two, Gerrard continues work on a book project that draws from thousands of photographs she shot beginning in the 1960's at music festivals and visits with music legends across the South and the wider US. The film captures Gerrard performing with friends and collaborators and celebrates her contributions to the cultural revolutions of the 20th century – breaking new ground for women in bluegrass with singing partner Hazel Dickens and challenging segregation during an interracial music tour across the South.
As she looks back, Alice balances all of the riches in her life and continues to create music that defies easy categorization, celebrates tradition and modernity, and inspires the next generation of Americana musicians.
