Since her death from a heroin overdose in 1970 at age twenty-seven, Janis Joplin has been a ubiquitous presence on posters, T-shirts, and classic-rock radio. In this documentary she reverts from an icon back into a human being. Academy Award-nominated filmmaker Amy Berg excavates unseen material, interviews Joplin's confidantes and uncovers personal letters. The resulting portrait gives us fresh insight into the mighty talent behind famous versions of “Piece of My Heart”, “Cry Baby”, and “Me and Bobby McGee”.
