D: Nimisha Mukerji | USA/Canada | 82 min | U.S. PREMIERE

Tempest Storm was mistress to both Elvis and JFK, and became an international star on the stage and screen in the 1950s.

Exploring her dramatic rise to fame as an entertainer and her swift fall from grace after an interracial marriage, Tempest Storm bares the heart and soul of an American icon in the telling of her controversial life story.
