Anita Pallenberg – a name synonymous with the vibrant heart of the '60s rock and roll era, a muse who inspired some of the greatest music of the time, and a style icon whose influence remains timeless.

From her groundbreaking impact on the fashion scene to her indelible mark on the world of music, this intimate documentary reveals the story of an unapologetic rock ‘n’ roller, actress, muse and mother who rose to prominence in the 1960s and 1970s. Using the words of her unpublished memoir, Anita draws us deep into her world, with the help of a supporting cast that includes her family - Marlon, Angela, and their father Keith Richards.

Never-seen-before home movies and family photographs explore life with the Rolling Stones: this is a bittersweet tale of both triumph and heartbreak. From Barbarella to the Swiss Alps, and the Lower East Side of New York, Anita Pallenberg was a woman ahead of her time.
