After being married twice and having had two children at the age of 17, she left everything behind, kidnapped her daughter and drove to New York to pursue a dream of becoming a singer. The nomadic life of the folk singer Karen Dalton is the story of a unique voice on the 1960s folk scene, but also of an iron will, broken friendships and fatal drug addiction. Today, there are only a few pictures of Dalton, but the music persists, together with her poems and writings. Her art is the raw material of a beautiful film where the story is told by her old friends and family. Today, a new generation has discovered Karen Dalton and given her the place in music history that she has always deserved.
