A morality tale of xenophobia, religious prejudice, mob violence, poverty, and their effect on two children in Liverpool during the Depression. When a shipyard closes, Liam and Teresa's dad loses his job. Liam, who's about 8, making his first Holy Communion, gets a regular dose of fire and brimstone at church. Teresa, about 13, has a job as a maid to the Jewish family that owns the closed shipyard. The lady of that house is having an affair, and Teresa becomes an accomplice. Liam stutters terribly, especially when troubled. Dad comes under the sway of the Fascists, who blame cheap Irish labor and Jewish owners. A Molotov cocktail brings things to a head.
LIAM GALLAGHER: AS IT WAS documents the musical comeback of the decade; an honest and emotional story of how one of the most iconic rock ‘n’ roll frontmen went from the dizzying heights of his champagne supernova years in Oasis to finding himself ostracized and on the periphery of the rock ‘n’ roll world. Starting again alone, stripped bare and with nowhere to hide, Liam risks everything to make the greatest rock ‘n’ roll comeback of all time, battling against the odds to return to the top of the charts.
