"To understand the man, you must meet the boy"--Slip case.

Working Class Boy is the unflinching story of Jimmy Barnes' childhood--from the slums of Glasgow to the forlorn immigrant suburbs of Australia, to the day he is asked to join a band and finds his escape and true path with Cold Chisel. A powerful and confronting story of growing up amidst domestic violence, poverty and alcoholism, the film shows the impact on Jimmy as a child and consequences for him as a man. Raw and compassionate, full of elegantly staged live musical performances, this is a compelling story of childhood survival, family, a search for love and, finally, redemption.
