In a Los Angeles hotelroom, Pink, a burnt-out rock star, remembers his past. Deprived of his father through his death in World War Two, Pink has been raised by his mother. School drives him to revolt. Marrying in the 60s, his wife soon leaves him for another man. Finding fame, his alienation merely increases, the line between reality and fantasy blurs - until he has to confront the wall he has built around himself.
