An official synopsis from the press release follows: 

The focus of this documentary is charming, intelligent and iconoclastic Australian singer-songwriter Ben Lee, whose creative growth since his early adolescence has undergone almost relentless media scrutiny. This is a playful yet deeply intimate portrait of Lee, exploring his meteoric rise to pop stardom and the issues of celebrity and spirituality that arise when launched into the spotlight.
