It was during one of these 'down' periods in 1962, that Frankie decided to take a trip. Not to Clacton but to the other side of his consciousness as he tried to deal with his depression through the controversial, though legal, use of LSD.
During his trip, induced by a doctor, Frankie flashes back to events from his childhood, and some of his career-defining moments on stage.
