If you’re still wondering who could be the spiritual mother of Madonna, Rihanna, Mariah Carey, Lady Gaga, Béyoncé and all the other divas who now make the earth turn to the rhythm of their footsteps, look no further. Her first name is Barbra. Her name is Streisand. And the real Queen B, 50 years before Beyoncé, is her and nobody else.

Barbra Streisand has an extraordinary artistic destiny, in the great tradition of Hollywood performers who act, sing and dance like no one else: two Oscars, nine Golden Globes, eight Grammy Awards, five Emmy Awards and more. This funny girl” with her mezzo-soprano voice redefined the rules of the game: a new model of the free, non-conformist and powerful female star, who paved the way for artists claiming girl power.

This film recounts the irresistible rise of the funny girl” who became the first female mega-star, in order to take a close look at an exceptional phenomenon: the birth of a star and the construction of an icon who would shape and influence all her artistic descendants, while embodying the cause of women and homosexuals, from her birth in 1942 to the apogee of her career in 1983.
