Against the backdrop of The Troubles, idealistic music fanatic Terri Hooley dreams of reigniting Belfast’s music scene, uniting the city’s divided people with reggae gigs and a record shop in one of the roughest areas. His counter-culture sensibilities struggle to find an audience in 1970s Northern Ireland and, recognising that ‘there is more than one alternative’, Hooley turns to the burgeoning Punk crowd. Terri’s gusto in championing local talent places him at the centre of a vibrant youth culture, winning success for bands like The Undertones – although does little for business. But financial rewards are hardly the point for Hooley and his infectious enthusiasm for music and people carry this feel-good love letter to the Northern Irish punk scene.
