Jack Malik (Himesh Patel) is a struggling singer-songwriter in the small English seaside town of Lowestoft whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend and manager, Ellie (Lily James).
When Jack regains consciousness after he is hit by a bus in a freak accident during a mysterious global blackout, he sings ‘Yesterday’ for his friends, and discovers they have never heard of the Beatles. After realising the world no longer remembers the band Jack takes advantage of this improbable opportunity and begins playing the music of the greatest of the rock band, claiming it as his own. It pays off quickly and Jack becomes a worldwide musical sensation.
However, Jack finds himself drifting away from Ellie, only realising his love for her when she has become intimidated by his success. Hailed as the greatest singer-songwriter of his generation, Jack prepares to release an album, but he’s increasingly consumed by guilt over his deception and decides he must make a fundamental moral decision whether to pursue his music career or the one he loves….
