Cass Wheeler - a British singer-songwriter, hugely successful since the early '70s, whose sudden disappearance from the music has been the subject of intense speculation among her fans - is in the studio that adjoins her home, taking a journey back into her past. Her task is to choose 16 songs from among the hundreds she has written since her early teens, for a uniquely personal greatest hits record, describing the arc of her life through song.
It has been over a decade since Cass last put out an album, 10 years since a tragedy catapulted her into a breakdown. In the course of this one day - both ordinary and extraordinary - each song Cass plays sets off a chain of memories, leading us deep into her past and into the creative impulse that has underpinned her work.
This is the story of a life - of highs and lows, love and separation, success and failure. Of what it is to live a fulfilled life and how to make peace with our mistakes.
