Annie Leibovitz has produced some of the most iconic images of the last 30 years and is, literally, our most influential woman photographer. She has shot the rich and famous, the profound and powerful, the exceptional and notorious. Her camera has documented the horrors of war - most recently in Sarajevo and Rwanda. Masterful at exposing her photographic subjects, Annie's own life has been private and protected. In this film, she made the decision to bare her artistic process, her personal journey and her delicate balancing of fame and family to the camera - a camera that is being vigilantly pointed by a filmmaker who is her younger sister.
