In a career stretching 50 years, legendary music producer Phil Spector has avoided a substantial interview - until now. Spector transformed rock and roll, becoming the first music producer to be a star in his own right. He gave the world Be My Baby, You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling, John Lennon's Imagine, and soundtracked a generation. Accused of murdering 40-year-old Los Angeles nightclub hostess Lana Clarkson, his trial in September 2007 ended dramatically in a hung jury. The trial reopens in October 2008 and threatens to eclipse his musical legacy for a second time. Taken from an exclusive interview filmed in March 2007, the film dissects Spector's songs from the perspective of his inner world, focusing a spotlight on a unique creative process that is, for the first time, explained by its author. Footage from his first trial provides a dramatic counterpoint to the unprecedented interview.
