The film is based on the theatre play by the same name, written by Kieran Hurley. It follows the story of two boys in Glasgow 1994, who go to an illegal rave just after the law was passed prohibiting these types of public celebrations. The boys decide to celebrate the night together in this way before their lives take them both in different directions. It is a coming of age story about the class divisions which remain in the big city. The film is recorded in black and white but is punctuated by moments of colour.
