Tina Turner is farewelling her fans in a new documentary that recounts her story of trauma and rebirth.

The feature-length film titled Tina follows Turner as she enters a final chapter that will see her move away from the limelight. Watch the trailer above.

"It wasn't a good life. The good did not balance the bad," Turner said in the film, per The Sun. "I had an abusive life, there's no other way to tell the story. It's a reality. It's the truth. That's what you've got, so you have to accept it."

The singer is now 81 years of age and happily married to her second husband, Erwin Bach.

In the film, the couple makes a trip to the US for the Broadway premiere of her show, The Tina Turner Story.

"She said, 'I'm going to America to say goodbye to my American fans and I'll wrap it up'.' And I think this documentary and the play, this is it — it's a closure," Bach said of Turner's approach to her music career.

Tina Turner arrives at the press night performance of "Tina: The Tina Turner Musical" at the Aldwych Theatre on April 17, 2018 in London, England.

In the documentary, the singer also addressed her relationship with her mother Zelma who suffered domestic abuse from her father, Floyd Bullock. She was later abandoned as a child.

"Mum was not kind. When I became a star, of course back then she was happy because I bought her a house. I did all kinds of things for her, she was my mother," Turner said in the documentary.

"She didn't want me, she didn't want to be around me, even though she wanted my success. But I did for her as if she loved me."

Turner's tumultuous life has been previously covered in her autobiography, I, Tina, and in the biopic What's Love Got To Do With It?.

Turner now lives in Switzerland with Bach and has renounced her US citizenship.
