Johnny Cash American Rebel is a celebration of the larger-than-life Johnny Cash from the unique perspective of the Man in Black’s greatest songs. Each song brings to life a chapter in the story of America, from the 1950s to modern-day, as we tour the life of music and artistic expression of one of music’s most storied talents. Over four decades, the film reveals Cash's passion, musicality and messages against war, injustice, racism and prejudice.
