This is a story about the family at the heart of American roots music-The Carters and Cashes. Starting with the Original Carter Family-A.P., Sara and Maybelle-the film traces the trio's early musical success, the transformation of the act into The Carter Sisters, June Carter's marriage to legend Johnny Cash and the efforts of the present-day Carter family to keep the music alive. Part history, part performance, part family saga, the film illuminates the Carter's musical and cultural contributions and features a who's who of Americana music including Johnny Cash, George Jones, Rosanne Cash, John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Sheryl Crow, The Carolina Chocolate Drops and more. Johnny Cash is featured in one of his last interviews.
