She was the undisputed queen of rock and roll, her powerful, bluesy vocals, unmatched. But, at age 27, a blast of nearly pure heroin cut short her tumultuous life. This episode traces the roots of her addiction and uses archive footage, dramatic reenactments and interviews with her closest companions--including her brother and former band mates--to piece together the last 24 hours of a voice of a generation.
