In every corner of the world, random people post personal video clips online. Most clips flounder in a sad limbo of indifference and anonymity—unless your YouTube handle happens to be Princess Shaw. By day, Samantha Montgomery cares for the elderly in one of New Orleans’s toughest neighborhoods. By night, she writes and sings her own songs as Princess Shaw, belting out soulful originals and posting a cappella clips on YouTube, usually reaching just a handful of viewers. Raw and vulnerable, her voice is a diamond in the rough. Across the globe, Ophir Kutiel, better known as Kutiman, is an Israeli musician living on a kibbutz outside Tel Aviv who mashes up YouTube videos from all over the world to create new musical pieces. Princess Shaw has no idea that he has found hers. Two strangers, almost 7,000 miles apart, begin to build a song. The film unfolds as Kutiman pairs Princess Shaw’s emotional performances in a beautiful expression of generosity and compassion, revealing the bona fide star underneath and her fight to never give up on her dreams.
