The film revolves around the life and mind of musician José González. Using video diary, surveillance camera, concert footage, tour documentation and animation, the directors give form to something as elusive as the creative process of one of Sweden’s finest – and most secretive – musicians. In the film we follow José González through intimate and unique scenes shot during work with the long-awaited second album In Our Nature. In his studio, at home and on tour. Through a diary, based on personal voice recordings we follow his everyday reflections. The film gives us an exclusive insight into the, at many times, lonely creative process and of one persons attempt to manage and understand his own existence. The film was shot over a three year period on location in Sweden, Japan, Singapore, United States, South Africa, England, Chile and Argentina.
