Is it a party? It’s a protest. Johnno and Spanner are best mates, despite being total opposites and from vastly different families. But Johnno’s family is moving to a different town, leaving spanner on his own with his volatile family and facing an uncertain future. They have one last summer together and it’s going to be a wild one, for them and the rest of the country. In search of adventure and escape the boys head out for a night together at an illegal rave and are swept up in the largest counter-cultural youth movement in the UK’s recent history. A story of unstoppable friendship, rebellion and the irresistible power of gathering youth, set to an eclectic and electrifying soundtrack.
