GEORGE MICHAEL: FREEDOM covers the span of his entire career, but concentrates on the formative period in the late Grammy(R) Award winner's life and career, leading up to and following the making of his acclaimed, best-selling album "Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1" and his subsequent, infamous High Court battle with his record label that followed, while also becoming poignantly personal about the death of his late partner and first love, Anselmo Feleppa. Filmed before Michael's untimely passing, the documentary is narrated by the singer, who was heavily involved in the making of the film that serves as his final work. GEORGE MICHAEL: FREEDOM features Michael's incredible, unseen archival and private home footage, giving viewers a first-person account of this dramatic period in his life - revealing how he became one of the most influential recording artists of all time who alone fought a corner for all artists by challenging the standard recording contract helping to rewrite the rules of the music industry.
