Storyline

Martin Phillipps has been called a lyrical genius and his band The Chills remain one of New Zealand's most iconic bands. This intimate portrait bears witness as the eccentric Phillipps battles the jarring reality of his own mortality. With a startling sense of humour even in the blackest moments, Martin reconciles a lifetime's worth of curious collections, looks back on a catalogue of heavenly pop hits and reclaims his place in the iconic Flying Nun and Dunedin Sound.
