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.
