Trekkies, watch out! This intimate portrait of legendary actor William Shatner takes us on a personal journey across nine decades of a life lived to the fullest.
"To boldly go where no man has gone before": the mission of the fictional starship Enterprise has been William Shatner's life's work -- and despite all his success, he has retained a remarkable modesty. This is attested to by the first and only feature-length documentary dedicated to his life, career, and philosophy.
