I'm Wanita is the story of a chaotic, flamboyant force of nature & her lifelong odyssey to realize her childhood dream. Based in Australia's 'Country Music Capital', Tamworth, Wanita (self-dubbed as "Australia's Queen Of Honky Tonk") lives her own unique version of the rough-talking, hard-drinking, country music lifestyle. Devoted to the sound & personalities of classic country and clearly "born in the wrong era", Wanita commits to walk in the footsteps of her honkytonk idols by recording in Nashville. Using a combination of observational, on-the-run interviews & live performance, the film follows Wanita over a tumultuous five years as she tries to redirect her reckless life to fulfill her potential & have one last stab at her dream -- before it's too late.
