Grace Jones is one of pop culture's biggest icons. She hit the 1970s and 1980s with her own distinctive, androgynous style, amazing outfits, spectacular stage shows and, not least, a unique musical expression. Her public image has always been a carefully guarded secret. This year she will be 70, but she is still active as a musician and tours the world over with her shows. In Sophie Fiennes' documentary, we take a surprisingly close look behind the façade. The director has followed Jones for 10 years, and the result is a fascinating movie in a fly-on-the-wall like style. The question remains however, who really controls the camera, the director or the diva? We follow Jones from a concert scene to a church, from Paris to Jamaica. Through conversations with her family, friends and colleagues, Jones reveals a childhood characterized by abuse and tells us how it has influenced her on the way to becoming one of our all-time greatest stars.
