Geneva, 1983. Joan Baez talks of her life spent between singing and her political commitment. From her childhood to her first steps as a singer with Bob Dylan, she speaks of her non-violent action, her commitment in universities and American civil society for the civic rights of black people and then against the Vietnam War. In 1983, her militancy brings her to help the boat people, leads her to Cambodia, in Ireland and in Poland. It is in her Californian house that she reconnects with singing, her son Gabriel and her Mexican roots.
