A chronicle of the triumphs and hurdles of Barry, Maurice, and Robin Gibb, the three brothers who founded the Bee Gees in 1958, beginning with their childhood in Australia. The iconic trio, who found early fame in the 1960s, went on to write over 1,000 songs and have 20 No. 1 hits throughout their career, transcending more than five decades of changing tastes and styles.

Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Frank Marshall, the film is an intimate exploration of the Gibb story, featuring revealing interviews with oldest brother Barry and archival interviews with the late twin brothers Robin and Maurice.

It features a wealth of never-before-seen archival footage of recording sessions, concert performances, TV appearances, and home videos. It also includes interviews with contemporary musicians who were influences by the trio – including Eric Clapton, Noel Gallagher, Nick Jonas, Chris Martin and Justin Timberlake.
