Plot Summary:

Arthur dropped the "killer" moniker and spun into alcoholism as his bandmates like Sylvain Sylvain and Davey Johanson (aka Buster Poindexter – the cab driver in "Scrooged" with Bill Murray) earned fame in the record industry and Hollywood. With no direction home, Arthur found his solace with God in the Mormon church and fled New York City. The film looks at Arthur's new fulfilling life as a librarian at a family history center and the reunion concert organized by Morrissey to bring Arthur back to the stage for one last show with his bandmates. This a heartwarming film that will appeal to almost anyone. It's about one man and his dream.
