What happens once you’ve realized your dreams of success and fame in rock and roll, but those dreams have disappeared as quickly as they came? If you're Colin Hay, they transform into something deeper and more enduring.

COLIN HAY – WAITING FOR MY REAL LIFE is the inspiring story of singer-songwriter and former Men at Work front man Colin Hay, and his personal and artistic journey––from dizzying heights to staggering lows, then to finding salvation through song. Ultimately, commitment to his craft and the development of a truly one-of-a-kind stage show set Hay on the path to a deeply satisfying solo career, one that is still ascending. With sold-out shows, critically acclaimed albums, and a word-of-mouth reputation for providing one of the finest nights out a music fan could ask for, Hay finds himself at the top of his abilities and just getting started.

COLIN HAY uses intimate footage from Hay’s successful 2013 tour of the US, Europe, and Australia to weave a core thread through his long and winding story. Featuring interviews with close family, friends, and such celebrity admirers as Hugh Jackman, Mick Fleetwood, Zach Braff, and Guy Pearce, the film is as funny as it is informative and inspiring. It further boasts some of Men at Work’s most recognizable hits from the 1980s, as well as a bevy of Colin’s inimitable solo songs.
