Nowhere Boy

Description

Angered when he learns that his parents are actually his aunt and uncle, a young John Lennon seeks out his birth mother—yet discovers both rock 'n' roll and a musical legacy that sets him on a path to fame and fortune. But navigating the frothing packs of mostly female fans who flock after his band, The Beatles, may turn out to be easier than dealing with his anger at the mother who abandoned him and the aunt who raised him as her own son.
