1968: Having fallen on hard times, and desperate to re-establish herself, Judy Garland (an Oscar-winning Renée Zellweger) accepts a residency in London to perform a five-week, sold-out series of concerts. Separated from her children, who are back in Los Angeles where her ex-husband is fighting her for custody, and heavily dependant on drugs and alcohol, she reflects on her life, specifically her childhood, irreparably damaged by studio chief Louis B Mayer. Yet every night she still manages to dust herself off, welcome her fans and become “Judy Garland”, the star they all know and love.
