Synopsis

Mat Whitecross directs this rites-of-passage drama following a young Manchester band's attempts to try to attend a historic Stones Roses gig in 1990. 'Tits' (Elliott Tittensor), the frontman in Mancunian guitar band Shadowcaster, and his bandmates Dodge (Nico Mirallegro), Zippy (Jordan Murphy) and Little Gaz (Adam Long), are desperate to get to the sold-out concert to finally see their heroes in the flesh. But, as the lads try to figure out how to turn their dream into a reality, they soon find their best laid plans at risk from a combination of money troubles, family bickering and ongoing problems with girls.
