Liverpool, 1955. 15-year-old John Lennon is a living with his Aunt Mimi and Uncle George, who have been his surrogate parents since he was five. He is especially close to his uncle, a very playful man. When George unexpectedly dies, John's strict and unemotional aunt tells the boy that now it's just the two of them. Aunt Mimi expects John to do well in school but he'd much rather be drawing or doodling. Her call to responsibility doesn't register at all with this rebellious youth who is still searching for his passion.

John is excited to he learn that his mother Julia lives nearby with her three young children and common-law husband. They are happily reunited and John begins seeing his mother regularly. Julia teaches him how to play the banjo and, when he picks up a tape of an African-American singer, Julia is the one he plays it for. In a crowded cinema, John is enthralled by the adulation given to Elvis Presley and soon he adopts the singer's hair style and swagger.

As soon as he is proficient on guitar, John starts his own band called The Quarrymen. He adds Paul McCartney to the group and is impressed with his talent and his ability to write original material.
