A revealing profile of Grammy Award–winning composer and producer David Foster that mixes rare archival footage, interviews, and unprecedented access to the Canadian-born musician, producer, songwriter, and composer.

Foster has helped sell more than a half-billion records and has collaborated with artists such as Chicago, Barbra Streisand, and Andrea Bocelli. He is also credited with discovering and working with Michael Bublé and Josh Groban. He helped introduce Céline Dion, who was a huge star in Quebec from the age of 12, to the English-speaking world in her early twenties, raising her profile to new heights.  

The documentary includes interviews from the artists who know Foster well, including Bublé, Dion, Barbra Streisand, Lionel Richie, Quincy Jones, Clive Davis, Kristin Chenoweth, Peter Cetera, Diane Warren and Carole Bayer Sager. His fifth and current wife, former American Idol contestant Katharine McPhee, and daughters Erin and Sara Foster from his second marriage to model Rebecca Dyer are also interviewed.
