Aging 1970s rocker Danny Collins cannot give up his hard-living ways – but then his manager, Frank Grubman, uncovers a 40-year-old undelivered letter to him from John Lennon. After reading the letter, Danny decides to change his way of life.

Tom has a wife, Samantha, and seven-year-old daughter, Hope, and is expecting a second child.
