Directed by former musician and photographer Alfred George Bailey this film was shot over four years and spans the life and career of the breakthrough star, Gregory Porter. Interviews and archive footage chart Gregory’s journey from his beginnings in Bakersfield, California, to stage, studio and beyond, with his remarkable story underpinned by exclusive access during recording of the new Grammy winning album, Take Me To The Alley. Featuring contributions from Gregory's brother Lloyd Porter and sister Lawanda, musical luminaries including Don Was, Hubert Laws, Van Morrison, Jools Holland, Gilles Peterson, Jamie Cullum, Jana Herzen and many more. The film touches on universal themes of fulfilling one’s promise, the hardest and most important lessons gleaned from life, and how success can come calling for you at any time.
