Plot Synopsis

Talented young actress Brittany Murphy and her supportive mother Sharon are determined to make Brittany into a star. After her breakout role in the 1995 hit "Clueless," she continues her climb to fame with high-profile films "Girl, Interrupted" and "8 Mile." But the relentless rumors and paparazzi, coupled with her insecurities about her appearance and desperation for approval, wreak havoc in her personal life. The men in her life come and go, but her mother remains her grounding force. Unlike other stage moms, she is always her support system, but that enduring love isn't enough to save her from the dark side of life in Hollywood. In 2007 Brittany marries shady film producer Simon Monjack. Two years later on December 20, 2009 at the age of 32, she dies of pneumonia, an iron deficiency and multiple drug intoxication. Four years after her untimely "accidental" death, her name is once again in the press. Her estranged father Angelo is claiming that the forensic evidence indicates that Brittany was deliberately poisoned, and he has his theories about who is to blame. As news reports swirl and Angelo demands that the authorities reopen the investigation, Sharon struggles with being thrust once more into the limelight to talk about her beloved little girl.
