One of the most successful pop acts of all time, UB40 enjoyed huge success, selling over 70 million records with hits including Red Red Wine, Can't Help Falling in Love and I Got You Babe. However, fame came at a price and the band members found themselves victims of their own success - as well as penniless. This documentary features interviews with Ali Campbell, Robin Campbell, Astro, Brian Travers, Mickey Virtue and Jimmy Brown, as they recall their rise to fame and an ongoing dispute that has split a family and a band, as they continue to tour as two separate groups
