She meets locals with memories of Maria Von Trapp and discovers her astonishing drive and determination that drove the family to become a travelling singing troop living on a tour bus for 22 weeks of the year.

She meets Nicholas Hammond who played Friedrich whose life has continued to be defined by the movie, and she travels to New York and to Stowe in Vermont where the family settled to recreate a little bit of Austria of their own at the Trapp Family Lodge and is privileged to meet 98 year old Maria von Trapp who is the last surviving member of the original seven children.

The film includes rare and unseen footage from the 1950s, as well as beautiful home movies shot during the filming of the movie itself.
