Synopsis

Biopic chronicling the life of the Northern Irish music promoter Terri Hooley, who championed the emerging Belfast punk music scene during the 1970s. Eager to shift thoughts away from those of the Troubles, music fanatic Terri (Richard Dormer) opens a record store, 'Good Vibrations', in the heart of one of Belfast's roughest districts. As the shop gains a loyal following, Terri, operating on a shoestring, decides to start a small record label with the aim of launching some of the local bands he's discovered, notably The Undertones. In it strictly for the music, Terri's naivety in business soon causes conflict, particularly at home, but the impassioned support for the Undertones first single, 'Teenage Kicks', by Radio 1 DJ John Peel, soon helps to justify Terri's overarching vision for an alternative Ulster.
