SoulBoy. 1974. Power cuts, strikes and boot-boy aggro on the terraces. Flares, Chopper bikes and beer at fourteen pence a pint.
Joe McCain, 17 and restless, is bored with the flatline tedium of a life that seems like it’s going nowhere. Enter JANE, moving to the beat of a music that Joe’s never heard, a vision of loveliness who opens the door to a whole world of sound, movement and all-nighter dancing at The Wigan Casino – the home of Northern Soul! Swept along on this tide of pulsating dance and lust, Joe finally finds somewhere he belongs and the acceptance and true love he yearns for.
