Summary
  • Rita Chiarelli, Canada's Queen of the Blues, takes a pilgrimage to the birthplace of the blues, Louisiana State Maximum Security Penitentiary a.k.a Angola Prison - what used to be the bloodiest prison in America. Rita's trip turns into an historic jailhouse performance, playing with inmates serving life sentences. Their shared bond of music, and Chiarelli's vivacious personality, draw striking revelations from the inmates
  • "A must-see portrait of contemporary U.S. prison life, and a reminder that flowers--i.e., country, blues, and gospel--will continue to grow through the pavement."--Library Journal
