ABOUT THE FILM

Composer of Snowbird, the song that rocketed Anne Murray to stardom, singer/songwriter Gene MacLellan was a Juno-winning folk music legend who tragically took his own life when his daughter was just 14. Two decades later, Catherine MacLellan – herself a talented musician with mental health issues – is finally ready to confront the hurtful mystery of her much-loved father’s heartbreaking suicide. Through archival footage and intimate interviews with fellow musicians – including Anne Murray, Lennie Gallant and the late Ron Hynes – this moving story is a heartfelt tribute to the life and enduring musical legacy of a troubled and talented man.
