After a traumatic childhood incident, Tommy retreats into the shadows of his mind and becomes deaf, dumb and blind. Growing into manhood, Tommy (The Who’s Roger Daltry) is subjected to bizarre cure attempts by The Acid Queen (Tina Turner), the Preacher (Eric Clapton), and the Specialist (Jack Nicholson) and in spite of his handicap defeats the Pinball Wizard (Elton John) to become the champ, hailed by devoted fans as a Messiah. a weird, crazy, wonderfully excessive version of The Who’s rock opera.
