Official Synopsis: As a young girl who always knew she was “different” from the other kids in her farm town home outside of Seattle, Patty never dreamed she would one day have her picture on the cover of “Rolling Stone.” But she also never fathomed that she could lose it all. Patty found herself, like her friend Kurt Cobain, drawn to the dark side of alcohol and drugs. Thrown out of bands and forced to sell everything including her drum set to support her habit, Patty seemed doomed to follow in the footsteps of the scores of musician friends.Patty’s story serves as a wake up call and an inspiration to anyone who has fallen into the grip of hopelessness and self-doubt. It is a heart-wrenching account of a woman, HIT SO HARD, who managed to regain her self respect, find love, and embrace her musical talent.
