To everyone's surprise, fifty-five years after the publication of "To Kill a Mockingbird" Harper Lee is publishing another novel. "Go Set a Watchman" was written before Lee's beloved masterpiece, as director Mary McDonagh Murphy explains in this update of her 2011 documentary Hey Boo: Harper Lee and "To Kill a Mockingbird". Murphy's Harper Lee: From Mockingbird to Watchman brings the story up-to-date as it sifts through the facts and speculation surrounding Lee and both her novels, and includes interviews with Lee's older sister, close friends, and literary admirers, from Oprah Winfrey to Wally Lamb.

"A much appreciated glimpse into the life and legacy of the beloved author. A fitting tribute to Nelle Harper Lee, an American treasure." -

"Provides wonderful insights into the book's social and literary importance as well as its author's personality."
- The Hollywood Reporter

"Filmmaker Mary Murphy amazingly manages to get to the heart of To Kill a Mockingbird, why it affects people of all colors, religions, social backgrounds and degrees of education, and why it remains relevant today."
- The New York Observer
