Reggae rapper Blue and his crew, Ital Lion are looking forward to an upcoming sound clash competition with a rival sound system. As the day of the competition draws closer we follow them sourcing tunes and equipment for the event, as well as negotiating daily racist abuse of their neighbours and the police. Despite setbacks, the crew remain determined for the night to go ahead. But as the big night draws closer, Blue's life begins to unravel both at home and on the street. Eventually his sense of frustration and isolation from society leads him to drastic actions. Set and shot in early 1980's South London, this superbly acted, coming-of-age tale brilliantly captures an emerging subculture and an important moment in British social history.
