Born in 1940, Levon Helm rose to fame as the drummer for The Band, who toured with Bob Dylan before beginning their own tours from 1968 to 1976. In the late 1990s, he was diagnosed with throat cancer, and the subsequent series radiation treatments that badly damaged his vocal cords. However, he made a remarkable breakthrough while drumming for his daughter, Amy – attempting to sing backup vocals, he slowly but surely regained the use of his voice. Director Jacob Hatley’s intimate documentary finds Mr. Helm at home in Woodstock, NY, in the midst of creating his first studio album in 25 years.
