Documentary, Music, Biography
Throughout his life, Bill Wyman, one of the original members of The Rolling Stones, shot hours of unseen film footage, took thousands of photographs, and collected a vast archive of memorabilia. He also kept a detailed diary to accompany these treasures. The film unveils this one-of-a-kind collection, alongside interviews with his family and friends, taking the audience on a first-hand journey through Wyman’s extraordinary experiences. Known by his former bandmates as a man of few words, the notoriously private bass player opens up to the camera, revealing the icons who inspired him to be a musician, from Chuck Berry and Ray Charles to Muddy Waters and Howlin’ Wolf. Wyman describes with modesty and vulnerability how he stayed grounded while seizing the meaningful moments that made up his thirty years touring the world with the Stones.

It's an artful, engaging and often amusing cinematic memoir that offers a unique, behind the scenes look at a working class boy raised by his grandmother, who found his home in the band that disrupted the music scene and made rock’n’roll history.
