Yesterday imagines a world in which everyone except protagonist Jack Malik (Hamish Patel) forgets that the Beatles ever existed. No lyrics, no melodies, nothing remains of what many have deemed the world’s greatest band — which works in Jack’s favor, as he strives to write down the tune and lyrics to every Beatles song he can remember in order to chase the fame he’s dreamed of as a singer-songwriter.

There are a lot of crazy things to imagine about a world without the Beatles — and the film does, suggesting it’s also a world without Oasis, Coca-Cola, cigarettes, and more — but one of the most emotional upshots of this alternate universe is that if the Beatles never catapulted to global fame in the 1960s, John Lennon might still be alive.
