Susan Boyle is one of the most successful singers in the world, a Grammy-nominated artist who has sold over 20 million records, a woman who came from nowhere to become an overnight global sensation. But she has suffered from anxiety her entire life and, despite her fame, she has never felt able to tour. Until now… Susan has decided to test herself by embarking on her first-ever series of live solo concerts.

This film follows Susan on a journey through the stress of rehearsals, to the opening night in Scotland and on to a sell-out concert in America in front of 20,000 adoring fans. If all goes well a world tour will follow. But Susan’s nerves make pressure extremely difficult to cope with and success is far from certain…
