Synopsis:
Lee Thompson is an unlikely character. Early career choices had him spend a year in a detention centre. Luckily he met two other unlikely characters: Mike Barso Barson and Chrissy Boy Foreman. They shared interests in graffiti, train hopping and music. This film follows the progress of Lee from meeting Barso and Chrissy Boy, starting to make music together, and then meeting Chas, Suggs and later Bedders and Woody in what was to become Madness.
Following the path of Lee's life through his lyrics in such classics as "The Prince", "Embarrassment", "House of Fun", "Lovestruck" and "NW5", the band as well as various friends, family and musicologists discuss his work, but strangely they all look a little like Lee...
