The trailer archived the singer's early life and childhood by showing where Turner and her mother lived. The star narrated in the background about how Zelma would sit by a window in the kitchen.

Her mother would be seated there while making Sunday dinner. The singer recalled watching her parent and thinking how beautiful she was until her mother wasn’t by the window anymore.
