Lancashire, 1974. Working-class teenager John (Elliot James Langridge) is an outsider even in his own family. "He's becoming a weirdo," complains his mother. Even John's teacher (Steve Coogan, in a hilariously obnoxious cameo) deems him worthy of humiliation, lambasting him at school for his earnest lyrics about unrequited love. But things start to turn around for John when he meets Matt (Joshua Whitehouse), an aspiring DJ with big dreams that will take him far from their dreary industrial town. Matt turns John on to American soul music, tutoring him in rare grooves and audacious dance steps. Matt also introduces John to amphetamines, which prompt the lyrics to fairly jump out of his fecund imagination. Soon the two young men are hosting their own club nights, and our former wallflower is flying high. But sooner or later, everyone has to come down.
