Elton John fait irruption à une réunion des alcooliques anonymes, habillé avec un costume de scène orange extravagant. Il se livre sur ses excès et ses addictions (drogues, médicaments, sexe et alcool). Il raconte à l'assemblée l’absence de son père et les rapports parfois compliqués avec sa mère Sheila Eileen. Enfant, le jeune Reginald Dwight intègre la prestigieuse Royal Academy of Music où il montre ses talents au piano. Il développe peu à peu un gout pour l'excentricité et le rock 'n' roll. Quelques années plus tard, il rencontre le parolier Bernie Taupin. Ce dernier écrit les paroles, Elton les met ensuite en musique. La collaboration dure des années. Alors qu'Elton cache son homosexualité, il vit cependant une liaison compliquée avec son manager John Reid et fait un « faux mariage » avec Renate Blauel. Il va mettre quelques années à avouer son orientation sexuelle à ses proches.
