    • Synopsis
    • At 18, Kate Nash reached the stratosphere of pop music, vaulting from a working class family in North London into worldwide tours, a platinum record.

      A few years later, Kate is breaking down, defrauded by her manager and dropped by an industry that cannot find a place for her in the girl-pop machine; Kate sets out to build a better world, dedicated to the artist as creator, not commodity, and using, as she always has, the uplifting power of online culture and her own authentic voice.

      She pursues acting as another form of artistic expression (and way of making a living) and lands a part in the TV series GLOW.

      Punk renegade, TV wrestling queen, and DIY leader of an all-girl band, Kate’s journey is an inspiring call to the creative heart in all of us: be fearless.
