When X-Ray Spex singer, punk icon Poly Styrene, died of breast cancer, the daughter took over her mother's archive. A journey through time and space, to mend their strained relationship - even if it's too late. Through the film, we get to follow this journey, see London's punk scene from the inside, and how a racialized female role model can be created.

Poly Styrene's voice is read by Oscar nominee Ruth Negga, and the film won the British Independent Film Award for best documentary film.
