After splitting up with his girlfriend, aspiring white rapper Jimmy lives on the poor side - the black side - of the 8 Mile divide in Detroit with his single mom. While working at a steel pressing plant, Jimmy tries to work up the nerve to enter the local rapping 'battles' and earn some respect and a ticket out of destitution.
Following L.A. Confidential and Wonder Boys, this makes a remarkable hat-trick for Hanson and is a personal triumph for Eminem. As MC Hammer might say - U Can't Touch This.
