This award-winning documentary tells the story of the American poet and civil rights activist Maya Angelou’s journey to Ayrshire to visit the birthplace of fellow poet Robert Burns. As a child, Angelou read Burns’ work and discovered similarities between her own life and his, which she explores throughout this documentary, filmed at the time of the bicentenary of Burns’ death.
