Francis Scott Key, a constitutional lawyer, famously penned the lyrics to The Star-Spangled Banner following the 12-hour bombardment of Ft. McHenry in September 1814. Against a backdrop of history, and through the eyes of his wife Polly, the film highlights Key's personal life, legal career and artistic development.
