The full synopsis for the film reads: “After years in the limelight, Selena Gomez achieves unimaginable stardom. But just as she reaches a new peak, an unexpected turn pulls her into darkness. This uniquely raw and intimate documentary spans her six-year journey into a new light.”

Gomez has spoken openly about her health struggles in recent years, receiving a “life-saving” kidney transplant from friend and Grown-ish star Francia Raisa in 2017. She experienced complications during surgery, with an artery breaking.
Two years ago, Gomez released her third studio album ‘Rare’, and has recently had success as an actress in TV series Only Murders In The Building with Steve Martin and Martin Short, which was recently renewed for a third season following the second season premiering earlier this year.
