The film is a musical retelling of the early life and breakthrough years of legendary rock star Elton John.
As a child, he was raised by his cold mother Sheila and more caring grandmother Ivy, while his father Stanley never cared for him at all. He took up an interest in music and took piano lessons before performing in a band as an adult. Later, he would meet Bernie Taupin, who would collaborate with him to write his biggest songs. Elton later rises to stardom under the management of John Reid, with whom he has a brief relationship with before Reid proves to be a rotten and greedy person. Elton struggles with his homosexuality and also develops a drug and alcohol problem.
With his life appearing to spiral out of control, Elton finally seeks help and attempts to improve. He no longer feels that he needs anything from his parents or Reid, but he repairs his friendship with Bernie before getting better and returning to perform.
Today, Elton John has been sober for nearly 30 years, remains friends and collaborators with Bernie Taupin, and he has found true love with David Furnish, and they are raising two sons together.
