This is the true story of John Lennon's dramatic last decade. Lennon was on top of the of world, being one of it's most influential people. Mark David Chapman, himself a tragic nowhere man, was on a collision course with history. By the end of 1980, the Beatles had been broken up for a decade - a decade John Lennon had spent in search of his true identity: singer, songwriter, activist, burn out. But now, he declared, "it's the perfect time to be coming back".  

Except that Lennon was a marked man. As early as the Beatles' controversial 1966 American tour, during which the band had feared for their safety, Lennon had complained, "You might as well put a target on me". The Nixon administration did just that, putting Lennon under FBI surveillance. Mark David Chapman's powerful, ever-growing obsession with the man he'd grown up idolising was about to to lead him right to Lennon's door. Chapman ultimately achieved the notoriety he craved by making the target on Lennon very real - and single-handedly wounding the spirit of a generation.
