How do you describe Audrey Hepburn? She was beautiful, talented, compassionate, charming and graceful but these words don't quite seem to fully capture her spirit. All the best fairy tales contain transformation, and Audrey's story is no exception. A malnourished child, estranged from her father, growing up in war-torn Europe, she harnessed her rare talent as an actress and ascended to the heights of Hollywood, becoming a superstar in just a few short years. Yet her life was more than just a fairy tale. It was a life of many heartbreaks, glossed over by her image as a joyful, pixie-like figure still reproduced on memorabilia all over the world. With bespoke animation mirroring the fairy tale elements of Audrey's story, this film is an intimate portrait of an enduring and global icon, celebrating a woman who lived her own version of a meaningful and fulfilling life.
