Breaking a Monster begins as the three members of band Unlocking the Truth are all in seventh grade, spending their weekends playing a blend of heavy metal and speed punk in Times Square, often drawing substantial crowds. They take on a manager: a 70-year-old industry veteran. With his guidance they are soon on their way to a $1.8 million record deal and a precarious initiation into the music industry. Anything feels possible, and in some moments the band can almost feel the eyes of the world gazing upon them. The boys are coming of age, not only as they make the leap to being professional musicians, but also as they transcend childhood and take their first steps into the complexities of adulthood. The accelerated breakout of any band, let alone one of pre-teens, is an extremely narrow and specific period in time, Breaking a Monster is the story of this rapid transformation.

Imagine if Woodstock, the defining cultural event of the '60s, had continued to exist over the last three decades. How would it have changed, evolved and adapted to a world which was being completely rewritten around it? How much of the idealism and communality of the original event would have survived? How much would the inexorable pressures of consumerism and corporate sponsorship have transformed the founding ethos of the event? And what a powerful mirror it would hold up to the extraordinary changes which have taken place in the way we live our lives in the last 30 years. Of course Woodstock and most of the other music festivals of the era did not survive. Only one did and its name is Glastonbury.

As he struggles down the road of redemption, Bad learns the hard way just how tough life can be on one man's crazy heart. Bad promises nothing to Jean and, as a single mum with plenty of regrets, Jean knows she'd be a fool to believe even in that. Still, they continue winding up in each other's arms. At the age of 57, Bad still lives his life out on the road, playing long-ago hits in third-rate beer joints and bowling alleys to aging crowds as drunk and yearning as he is, while his fleeting fame slides into obscurity. The most he can hope for these days is to open a big concert for his young protege, Tommy Sweet, who learned everything he knows from Bad - except Tommy, unlike Bad, managed to become rich and famous from it.
