LS Lowry works as a rent collector in 1920s Salford, where he closely observes the ebb and flow of daily life. In the evening, he takes art classes and translates his studies of people into detailed paintings. Art is his passion but his embittered, bed-ridden mother Elizabeth does not share this love. She does everything within her power to dissuade her son from following his dream. Caught between artistic ambitions and the woman who raised him, Lowry silently vows to prove his mother wrong.
