The movie begins with James Brown’s childhood, growing up in extreme poverty with an absent father and a hardworking but overburdened mother. Despite the hardship, James discovers his love of music and begins to pursue his dreams. He is taken under the wing of Bobby Byrd, a local gospel singer, and begins to perform with his band.
The film then follows James’s meteoric rise to fame as he moves to New York City and begins to record music. He quickly gains recognition as a powerful performer and creates a unique style that blends soul, funk, and rock. As his fame grows, James’s personal life begins to unravel. He becomes increasingly controlling and violent, alienating his friends and family.
Despite his personal issues, James continues to tour and record music, eventually becoming one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. The film culminates with James’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and his performance at the Apollo Theater.
