The film tells the story of the popular Danish singer-songwriter John Mogensen and his turbulent life as a father and a husband, but first and foremost as a musician. We follow John Mogensen from childhood to manhood and throughout his career which spanned more than twenty years, first with great succes in the vocal group Four Jacks and later as a solo artist. John Mogensen died suddenly of a heart attack in 1977.

Registration of festival participation and awards

The Danish Film Institute registers international festival participation and awards for Danish films, though primarily for films whose festival distribution is handled by the Danish Film Institute, and primarily in connection with festivals prioritised by the Danish Film Institute. Festival participation and awards regarding Danish films that are not handled through the Danish Film Institute's festival distribution will only be registered in connection with "launch" festivals, according to the Danish Film Institute's list of priority festivals.
