The story of Heart would make a terrific film.

Like many hugely successful rock groups, theirs is a classic tale of talent, struggle, perseverance, adversity, and triumph. The twist that makes Heart’s biography unique is the fact that this band is fronted by a pair of beautiful, determined sisters. 

At their point of entry in the mid-seventies, Ann and Nancy Wilson found themselves swimming against the current of a male-dominated music business that was rife with bias and sexism.
