If I Leave Here Tomorrow: A Film About Lynyrd Skynyrd

Director Stephen Kijak
United States / 95 min. / 2018 / English


The epic and wild history of the definitive southern rock group. From dawn to dusk rehearsals beside alligator infested swamp in Florida to filling stadiums and rubbing noses with The Who and The Rolling Stones.


The massive legacy of this bunch of "regular smalltown guys" survived 
the initial grudge born by the country folk who didn’t dig their hair and toking, and even the infamous plane crash that robbed them of their leader and singer, Ronnie Van Zant. With co-pilots, guitarist Gary Rossington and singer Johnny Van Zant (Ronnie's brother), we travel through key stages in the career of the first and legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd line-up. Bourbon-soaked brawls, hard-work ethic, hilarious “Go fuck yourselves!” and on-the-road shenanigans in-yer-face southern pride and the famous meltdown with Neil Young that spawned the anthem "Sweet Home Alabama".
