In the two-minute-long trailer, Gaga's trembling voice stirs you. Her cries of pain move you and  yet, her emergence makes you feel empowered. Because that is what Gaga's music has been about the since the beginning of her super successful career — making the weak, the unheard and the suppressed feel powerful.

"Paranoia, fear, body pain, anxiety,' she reveals in an interview with Beats 1's Zane Lowe, giving insights into her disappearance from the music scene. The trailer moves forward steadily, in a sequence that depicts events as and when they happened in the pop icon's life. The disconnect she felt with the people around her, her suffering, her fans and family being there to catch her when she fell and finally, taking the reins over.


The trailer ends on a dramatic note with flashes from Gaga's stupefying Super Bowl 2017 entrance. Looking at her hanging in mid-air, between blinding lights, makes you feel like she has resurrected, which she has, after years of pain and misery.

The documentary releases 22 September.
