1994, a small town in central Scotland. Best mates Johnno and Spanner share a deep bond. Now on the cusp of adulthood, life is destined to take them in different directions – Johnno’s family are moving him to a new town and a better life, leaving Spanner behind to face a precarious future.

But this Summer is going to be different for them, and for the country. The explosion of the free party scene and the largest counter-cultural youth movement in recent history is happening across the UK.

In pursuit of adventure and escape, the boys head out on one last night together to an illegal rave. Stealing cash from Spanner’s older brother, under the hazy stewardship of pirate radio DJ D-Man, the boys’ journey into an underworld of anarchy, freedom and a full-on collision with the forces of law and order.

Brian Welsh, UK, 2018, 96 min. English spoken, Dutch subtitles. With Kimber Closson, Martin Donaghy, Brian Ferguson, Ryan Fletcher, Laura Fraser.
