In May 2011 family and friends gathered together to pay tribute to the late, great singer-songwriter Kate McGarrigle. This film is part concert, and partly an intimate look at a family coming to terms with the loss of a loved one. The film is a testament to Kate’s incredible songwriting, and the bond she shared not only with her children and sisters, but to all the people in the film who lovingly celebrate her life through her songs. Whilst the film deals with an absorbing experience about the healing power of music as a cathartic, celebratory life force. Joining Rufus and Martha Wainwright and the rest of the family are Norah Jones, Emmylou Harris, Antony, Teddy Thompson and Krystal Warren.
