"I did my best to follow the calling of my soul..."
So sings lesbian singer/songwriter pioneer Ferron, from Girl on a Road. The road is that ubiquitous metaphor, the chronicler of journeys. In this dynamic new film from director Gerry Rogers, the road serves as both the metaphor for the direction of a life, and the literal narrative thread; tracing Ferron's reunion with her band and their first concert trek together in over a decade.

Part performance film, part biopic, Ferron: girl on a road traces, the life, the songs, the loves, the heartbreaks, and the pioneering path carved by a true folk legend. Intimate, and sweeping all at once, this film moves beyond "chronicle" and captures in word and deed, the essence of a visionary artist, and the soul of an icon.
