1990. England. A revolution is building across the UK. Dilapidated warehouses and factories come to life at night. Euphoric teens defy police bans and cordons to embrace life and the dance floor. Acid house has arrived and friends Dylan (Jack O’connell) and Matt (Henry Lloyd-Hughes) are at the heart of it. This is their story.
Tired of scamming their way to a quick buck, Matt and Dylan put together their first rave with the help of their mates and the maddest DJ on the scene, Captain Acid (Tom Meeten). When their success catches the eye of London clubbing kingpin, Gary Mac (Stephen Wight), the boys are whisked away into a VIP world of sun soaked villas dripping in girls, bin bags full of cash, dance floor anthems, drugs and temptation.
Soon local thug John ‘The Rat’ Anderson (Ben Batt) gets wind of their success and ruthlessly forces his way into the business threatening everything that Matt and Dylan have worked for. What began as celebration of music and friendship soon becomes something far more sinister and dangerous.
