"The Amazing Nina Simone" traces Nina’s roots from her upbringing in segregated North Carolina, when she was once Eunice Waymon, playing piano with a White piano teacher, her beloved Mrs. Mazzy.  Destined to be a great Classical Pianist, Eunice’s journey is carefully documented as she experiences early disappointments navigating the Classical Music establishment, landing in an Atlantic City bar, where she develops her unique signature mix of layering Folk, Gospel, Classical, Pop and African music.  Forced to sing or lose the job, she conceals from her religious mother that she is performing in a bar, and Nina Simone - a star - is born!
