This Scottish drama emphatically evokes the rave scene of the mid-90’s, as we follow two pals having the time of their lives.   

Johnno and Spanner are best mates who share a deep bond. Now on the cusp of adulthood, life is destined to take them in different directions for the first time – Johnno’s family are moving him to a new town and a better life, leaving Spanner behind to face a precarious future. In pursuit of adventure and escape, the boys decide to go out on one last night together to an illegal rave. 

This is a powerhouse film littered with nostalgia; an expression of friendship, youthful rebellion and music that defined a generation.
