As most fans know by now, Gaga: Five Foot Two is set to be a very emotional documentary with striking moments from Lady Gaga’s career. Billboard has just released new details of an emotional scene that will be featured in the documentary which takes place in a nursing home where Lady Gaga’s grandmother is currently staying.
The film reaches an apex during a key scene that takes place at the end of a taxing day. Gaga receives a phone call from a cancer-stricken friend, and later joins her father, Joe Germanotta, at her grandmother’s nursing home to play her grandmother the album’s title track — a tribute to her deceased daughter. Tears stream down Gaga’s face as her dad, overcome with emotion, steps out of the room during the visit.
The scene almost didn’t happen.
The result is an intimate single-camera shot that moves from Gaga’s grandmother’s face to her father to Gaga, who plays the song on her cellphone.
Billboard has also released two brand new images from the documentary that you can view below!
