Rita Chiarelli, Canada’s Queen of the Blues, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the Blues: Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary, a.k.a. Angola Prison—formerly the bloodiest prison in America. Rita’s trip turns into an historic jailhouse performance, playing with—rather than for—musician inmates serving life sentences. Their shared bond of music, and Chiarelli’s ebullient personality, draw striking revelations from the inmates. Rather than sensational stories of convicts, we witness voices of hope as their love of music radiates humanity and redemption on their question for forgiveness.
