Her face appears everywhere nowadays: in expositions of course, in books, but also on mugs, pillows, tote bags, shirts, covers of magazines. Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is immensely popular and that's not surprising as she found a way to capture the poignant story of her life in colourful self-portraits, serving as a model and source of inspiration for many. This film shows you the woman behind those portraits.

Frida Kahlo's work was intense and mirrors the constant fysical pain she had to endure as a result of polio and a traffic accident, the grief over her childlessness, her political commitment and her broken heart, but still radiate an abundance of energy and zest for life. How is that possible? In this documentary, Italian actresss Asia Argento goes on a trip to find out who Frida was in the heart of Mexico. Her most famous self-portraits, her letters, fragments of her diaries, exclusive interviews with family and other artists, historical documents and reconstructions of her life eventually show us two different versions of one woman: Frida as icon of contemporary feminism and Frida as a free, independent artist.
