An investigation into the death of Kurt Cobain follows allegations that the Nirvana superstar may have been murdered. As Broomfield follows various leads, he finds himself pursuing Cobain’s wife Courtney Love and questioning her commitment to free speech. Broomfield single-handedly changed the face of documentary film with his minimal crew and ability to weave himself into the film’s narrative. His contribution to the modern documentary is immeasurable.
