A lonely teenager, curious and sharp, grows up in the shattered city of Liverpool. Two women clash for his love: Mimi, the formidable aunt who raised him, and Julia, the spirited mother who gave him up. Yearning for a normal family, John Lennon escapes into music. His fledgling genius finds a kindred spirit in the young Paul McCartney. But just as John’s new life begins, the truth about his past leads to a tragedy he would never escape.

Poignant and powerful, this is the untold story of the boy who created The Beatles. The feature directorial debut of conceptual video artist Sam Taylor-Wood, NOWHERE BOY was adapted from the memoirs of John Lennon’s stepsister by screenwriter Matt Greenhalgh (CONTROL).
