At college in 1980s, Robbie Goulding, an Irish-born teenager, meets Fran Mulvey, a Vietnamese refugee. Together they form a band. Joined by cellist Sarah-Therese Sherlock and her brother Sean on drums, they set out to chase fame.

Spanning 25 years, we fast-forward through an evocative soundtrack of struggle and laughter. Infused with blues, New Wave, and punk, the tale stretches from the Glastonbury Festival to Long Island, culminating in July 2012, a night that changes everything.
