Logline

Relying strictly on archival footage, this stirring collage allows far deeper insight than any feature film about Lady Diana.

The first motion-picture documentary about the life of the Princess of Wales gives us a completely new perspective on Lady Diana’s life, work, and tragic death. By using only contemporary archival footage, the story speaks for itself, giving us a direct, unbiased, and personal approach to one of the most photographed persons of all time.
