"It's very hard for me to watch. I will never watch it again, but I'm very proud of it," she concluded. The movie spanning 95 minutes premiered on November 4, 2022, on the platform. "After years in the limelight, Selena Gomez achieves unimaginable stardom. But just as she reaches a new peak, an unexpected turn pulls her into darkness," the synopsis of the movie says. It is promoted as a "uniquely raw and intimate" documentary about her life.

Previously, the documentary's director Alek Keshishian told EW that Gomez's mother also had a hard time watching the movie. "The complicated feelings of a parent knowing her daughter suffered like that, and that she wasn't able to help," he explained in 2022. The director added that even though the mother-daughter duo has healed their relationship, watching the film is like "recutting yourself a little bit" and facing that moment again.
