I’m Wanita is the story of a renegade country music singer and her odyssey to live out her 
childhood dream of becoming a country music star.  
 
Wanita arrived in Tamworth, Australia’s Country Music Capital, 25 years ago with stars in her eyes. Now in her late 40s, she is Australia’s self-crowned ‘Queen of Honky Tonk’ but is still waiting for the recognition she knows she deserves.  
 
Colourful, crass and obsessed with the sound and stars of country music from a bygone era, Wanita is on the verge of giving up. But she finds unlikely allies in fellow musicians Gleny Rae Virus and Archer. They agree to accompany her on her quest to record an album in Nashville, following in the footsteps of her Honky Tonk idols.  
 
‘Australia’s self-described Queen of Honky Tonk is a larger-than-life character with a heart of gold and a no-holds-barred attitude to life, and Matthew Walker’s film serves her well’ – The Australian
