“I’ve worked all my life,” Spears could be heard saying in the trailer. “I don’t owe these people anything.”
The trailer depicts Spears as a victim of her parents, and someone close to the pop singer said in the trailer she could not trust either her mother or father.
Another voice in the trailer stated that Spears feared that her parents were plotting to take her fortune away.
According to a press release, the film, which is set to premiere on Sept. 28, will tell “the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom.”
The film is based on years of investigative work with exclusive interviews and documents, The Guardian reported.
As Changing America previously reported, Spears’ Instagram account, which had about 34 million followers, was deactivated due to the singer wanting a break from social media after her father, Jamie Spears, agreed to step down as her conservator, a major legal victory in the pop star's battle against her 13-year conservatorship. The pop star has since reactivated her account.
