blues band, but he’s not making much money. Jermaine
splits his time between his parents’ home and his
girlfriend’s. Jackie is trying to start up an
internet clothing company. There is a lot of
resentment towards Michael. The brothers feel
Michael has turned his back on them by only caring
about his legacy. How much more can their parents,
Joe and Katherine, take? They are close to 80-years
old. The sisters, Janet, LaToya and Rebbie, are
doing well with their mates, but they can’t afford
to take on their brothers’ burdens. The Jackson
Brothers have been through hell and back with bad
investments, bankruptcies, divorces, I.R.S. debt,
child support and numerous baby mamas. If the
brothers reunited for a tour with Michael, could it
help them get their lives back together?
