Plot Summary: The film is an intimate portrait of the maverick jazz vocalist Anita O’Day, a self-professed "song-stylist" and rightly known as one of the greatest jazz divas of all time. Filmmakers Robbie Cavolina and Ian McCrudden have devoted four years in order to perfectly capture O’Day’s seven decade career. "Anita O'Day: The Life of a Jazz Singer" documents her wild ride; following her career from the early days singing alongside the likes of Gene Krupa, Roy Eldridge, Stan Kenton, Louis Armstrong and Hoagy Carmichael through her many great adversities which she fought to overcome; a 20-year heroin and alcohol addiction, several failed marriages, abortions and arrests and finally, her last-hurrah album, completed just before the singer’s 2006 death at age 87.
