SYNOPSIS

An intimate immersion into the singular world of nightlife and fashion icon Susanne Bartsch. Through an impressionistic blend of archival and present-day footage, the film explores how Susanne has influenced NYC culture and trail blazed her own trajectory through motherhood and aging, while ultimately coming to terms with her legacy. She’s also raised millions of dollars for the fight against AIDS and launched the careers of icons like RuPaul, Marc Jacobs, and Amanda Lepore.

 

The film simultaneously paints a complex portrait of Susanne both as icon and as a human grappling with a question we all face in the third act of our lives: what has been our contribution?
