Using interviews and archival footage, If I Leave Here Tomorrow: A Film About Lynyrd Skynyrd is an authorized documentary that explores the music and backstory of the legendary Southern rock band. With the songs from the first six Lynyrd Skynyrd albums driving the narration, the film focuses on the story of the band's late frontman Ronnie Van Zant—his upbringing, his roots, his work ethic, and his contradictory persona as both a mythic Southern rock poet and someone who'd get into fights after one too many from time to time, as well as the relationships between his friends and fellow founding members Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, along with later bandmates Ed King and Artimus Pyle.
