He's handsome, funny, shrewd, crude and maybe even slightly demented. But no doubt he is one sensational blues artist who has even been likened to a Picasso of the genre. Most importantly Johnny is one of the most determined human beings of our generation. So determined, that within six months, [before the day he turns 30] he's going to get signed to a major Blues record label, against all odds and by any means necessary. And shortly thereafter he will go on to win the "W.C. Handy Award" for "Best New Blues Artist of the Year", ...Or so he hopes. Along the journey into Johnny Childs' world, we begin to understand the incredible personal history that fuels his tremendous musical passion. Eight years in the making, and culminated from over 200 hours of footage and other media, this film follows Johnny as a 12 year old runaway, through his restrictive Ultra-Orthodox Jewish upbringing in Toronto, dealing cocaine in Miami and a strange but spirited journey thru Boston, Jerusalem, New York, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Ultimately, THE JUNKMAN'S SON is a candid, off the wall story about human determination and a portrayal of passion, excess, risk-taking, fame and the pursuit of one's own personal happiness.
