Synopsis

The hilarious true story of two nobodies who took on the biggest somebody on earth, from the writers of 'The Commitments'.

Neil McCormick, a punk schoolboy in Dublin in the 1970s wants to be famous, more than famous, he's certain his destiny is to be a rock god. He and his little brother Ivan have it all worked out: the platinum albums, the stadium concerts, the screaming girls, the quest for world peace. There's one thing they hadn’t counted on, the small boy quietly sitting on the other side of the classroom has plans of his own. And his name is Bono. And there’s another thing, Bono tells Neil he wants Ivan for his band. And Neil’s not going to tell him. http://www.killingbono.co.uk/
