John’s boring working-class life in 1974 England gets turned upside down when he’s introduced to the enthralling music and furious choreography of American soul music by a local DJ, Matt. Sharing a passion for the music’s energy, John and Matt leap into the DJ scene, planning underground raves and searching for cover-ups, rare soul recordings kept hidden and exclusive with false labels. Helped by Matt’s feverous spirit, John shakes up his life, including standing up to his greatest critic, Mr. Banks (Steve Coogan). Amidst all the insanity of the club scene’s underbelly, both boys are swept up by the beat and hype. With the dream of a trip to America implanted in their minds, can John and Matt ignore the distractions and focus on the soul? This is the story of a youth culture that changed a generation and exploded into a cultural phenomenon which influenced songwriters, producers, DJs and designers for decades to come.
