The Winding Stream
"The Winding Stream" tells the story of the American roots music dynasty, the Carters and the Cashes. The Carters didn’t just play the music of their hill country upbringing. They helped invent it and influenced generations of musicians along the way, including one young man who, at first blush, seemed more renegade than reverent adherent. He would be the one to lift up the Carter legacy. - Johnny Cash. The film story of how the family rallied to help him beat back the demon of substance abuse and how he promoted the Carters name and music is one of tremendous reciprocity and love.
