London, 1964. Aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp (brother of actor Terrence) and Kit Lambert set out to find a subject for their underground movie, one that will reflect the way it feels to be young and dissatisfied in postwar London. This unlikely partnership of two men from vastly different backgrounds was inspired by the burgeoning youth culture of the early 1960s. Lambert and Stamp searched for months and finally found  a band called The High Numbers, who had a rebellious restlessness, just what they were looking for. They abandoned their plans to make a film, and instead decided to mentor and manage the group -  the result was rock 'n' roll history. The group became The Who. Featuring interviews with surviving group members and rare achivial footage. A great glimpse into a bygone era of 60s pop music and culture.
