A road-movie dedicated to Christa Paffgen, known by her stage name “Nico”. One of Warhol’s muses, singer of The Velvet Underground and a woman of legendary beauty, Nico lived a second life after the story known to all, when she began her career as a solo artist. Going on her last tours with her band in the 80s, the “priestess of darkness” found herself shaking off the weight of her beauty and rebuilding the relationship with her forgotten son. It is the story of a rebirth, of an artist, of a mother, of the woman beyond the icon.
