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.

John Mogensen died suddenly of a heart attack in 1977.

Comment The film, a local box-office hit, is seen by more than 400,000 cinemagoers. Ole Bornedal's 'Small Town Killers' (2017) attracted more than 255,000 Danes to the cinema. Other recent titles include '1864' (2016), a feature about a fateful year in Danish history which was also made into a TV series. Bornedal’s breakthrough came with his feature debut 'Nightwatch' (1994), and he has won a string of awards for titles such as the children’s film 'The Substitute' (2007), 'Just Another Love Story' (2007) and 'Deliver Us from Evil' (2009).
