In 1979 Norma Bailey made the gritty documentary Nose and Tina, about a prostitute, Tina, and her boyfriend, Nose. Fifteen years later Tina (now Linda), contacted Bailey from an alcohol rehabilitation centre. Sometimes funny, sometimes upsetting, but always reveting, Bailey follows Linda and her children, sisters, mother, boyfriends and various extended family members as they move in and out of Linda's life. The True Story of Linda M. takes us on a remarkable journey into the heart and soul of a woman struggling with the darkness that lurks beneath the surface of her psyche.
