For those determined to soar, wings aren't necessary. The powerful, heartbreaking, and uplifting story about the legendary Ethel Waters.

Born in 1896 into abject poverty, Ethel Waters became a Vaudeville success and a recording sensation while crossing racial barriers to emerge as a Broadway and Hollywood star. However, a reputation for being difficult and her own distrust of those who might employ her or love her — largely a response to the unspeakable horrors of Jim Crow America — caused her to lose everything and become a recluse, until she found new strength from a most unlikely source.
