Nina was one of the century's most extraordinary talents, a 15-time Grammy nominee and Grammy Hall of Fame Recipient, her mesmerizing songs and passionate politics combined to make her the unforgettable Nina Simone (Zoe Saldana). But fame and fortune came with a price, and her later years were riddled with depression, alcohol abuse and isolation. Rediscovering the meaning of her life and work took courage and strength with the help of her friend and manager Clifton Henderson (David Oyelowo). With Clifton's encouragement, the "high priestess of soul" began a courageous journey back to her music ... and, eventually, herself.”
