Plot Synopsis

MELISSA ETHERIDGE: I'M NOT BROKEN is a two-part documentary that centers around the Grammy-award winning rockstar and activist penning an original song inspired by letters sent from incarcerated women in her Kansas hometown. The two-parter tells an inspiring story of healing and transcendence through the power of music when five female residents from the Topeka Correctional Facility, a women's prison in Kansas, write letters to Etheridge that she uses as inspiration to create and perform an original song for them. Having recently lost her son to opioids, Etheridge works to understand and interrupt the cycle of addiction while connecting with these women who, so often, are forgotten by society. Additionally, the docuseries explores themes of female incarceration, redemption, substance abuse, generational trauma, grief and healing. With female incarceration rates up 700 percent since 1980, Etheridge bonds with the women through the conduit of music as an act of empathy, understanding and hope. Both one-hour installments of MELISSA ETHERIDGE: I'M NOT BROKEN dropped on Tuesday, July 9, 2024 on Paramount+.
