Three Chords and the Truth
If Angie wasn’t so self-sabotaging, she could have been one of Australia’s leading musicians. Now in her forties, she finds herself terminally ill and alone. She struggles financially and plays in a seedy pub to fund the recording of her final album.
When Angie meets Ruby, a teenage runaway, the two form an unlikely bond when she teaches her to play guitar and write songs. But as Ruby becomes reliant on her, it becomes unbearable to tell her new young friend that she only has months to live.
“Marshall’s own songs, and resonant voice, alongside the Newcastle setting, bring a tender authenticity to this rebellious music-driven drama.” ~ Leon Murray, good.film
