The movie follows a five year period in Davis' life in which he withdrew from music and struggled through a relationship with first wife Frances Taylor Davis. Cheadle explained that he took the role because he felt it was a unique film:

"I had done several other quote-unquote biopics and was always struck by the limitations they presented, because they were trying to be historically accurate. Let's be honest, any biopic is a series of omissions and conflations of events and amalgamations of characters.

And you're trying to have a movie experience under three hours, so in the process you condense people's lives from cradle to grave, so things tend to feel episodic and event-oriented as opposed to a story about people and relationships and a character. So I didn't want to do another biopic.

When I heard the idea, from various people who had played with him, producers, writers, that this could potentially be something, I thought, if the script is great I would be open to it since he's always been a fascinating figure to me.'"
