Charting the journey of folk virtuoso Chris Thile as he puts together the Punch Brothers, what is likely the world’s first long-form classical bluegrass supergroup, Meatto’s doc is a look at what it takes用ersonally, professionally葉o do something groundbreaking artistically. It also doesn’t skimp on the music, which is both challenging and heavenly.
