Looks at the life of Ramblin' Jack Elliott who traveled and sang with Woody Guthrie and became a mentor to Bob Dylan. Jack's duaghter Aiyana had originally wanted to document the her father in action and bring his story to light.

This film, shot over a period of two years, contains performances, interviews and archival material including home movies from the Guthrie family's private collection.
