The biographical drama sketches a portrait of the singer and founding member of Beach Boys, Brian Wilson. In the 1960s, he is on the top of his fame, but his paranoid psychosis starts to emerge as well. In the 1980s, he is a broken man, constantly under the watch of doctor Landy. When a young car sales girl appears in his life and sees Wilson as something more than a human wreck, it turns out that his bad condition may have other causes.
