Synopsis

The life and death of Ian Curtis, lead singer of the legendary post-punk rock band, Joy Division. Torn between his family life, his growing fame and his love for another woman, Curtis committed sucide on May 18, 1980 at the age of 23, on the eve of Joy Division’s first U.S. tour. Without realizing it, Ian Curtis changed the face of rock music.
