Who are Kings of Leon? In 2002 brothers Nathan, Caleb, and Jared Followill, along with their cousin Matthew, formed the grungy alternative rock band in Mt. Juliet, Tennessee. Now they have millions of fans around the world. But growing up in the South was far from harmonious. Most of the brothers' young lives were spent in poverty, living in the back of an Oldsmobile while touring around the Bible Belt from church to church with the brothers' father, Ivan Leon, a Pentecostal preacher, and their mother BettyAnn, who tried desperately to ground the family during their travels.

Rebelling from the God-fearing gypsy lifestyle in true rocker fashion, the young men turned to secular music and a few recreational drugs in Nashville... and the rest is history etched in platinum and gold. Wisely anchoring this energetic behind-the-scenes documentary is the annual family reunion in the backwoods of Talihina, Tennessee, where the boys unwind with horseshoe throwing, beer guzzling, and a dip in the creek. First-time director Stephen C. Mitchell sculpts a youthful, honest, and vibrant look at what fuels the creative fire of these budding rock legends, providing fascinating insight for fans and non-fans alike.
