She gets to discover the real will.i.am, fascinated with creating the future and eager to give back. She is swept up in his hectic world but finally manages to get to the heart of what makes him tick.
"It's hard to think of two people who would make stranger bedfellows but what's brilliant about this documentary is that both parties could independently hold your attention. In many ways you wish most interviews could be done like this... it's done so well you hope this will become the norm."
