It’s 1985, and due to financial family troubles, teenager Conor has to switch to an inner-city Dublin school. Timid and shy, Conor struggles to fit in, feeling the wrath of the school bully. When he builds up the courage to talk to beautiful Raphina, he asks her to appear his band’s music video. To his delight, she says yes. But there’s a problem - Conor doesn’t have a band. With the help of his brother and new friends, he quickly assembles one, and discovers music as not only the perfect escape to his tumultuous life, but as an opportunity to make a fruitful future for himself.
Featuring great songs and musical sequences, this coming-of-age romantic comedy drops you right into 80s and reminds what it was like to be young and in love.
