"An explosive salvo of London lives and loves" - Disorder Magazine
Three days in the lives of four friends on the pulsating streets of East London. Girlfriends Liza and Sally have a band to pull together and a birthday to celebrate, yet from this moment on their lives will change forever.
Liza (Kat Redstone) hovers precariously between change and self-destruction, between leaving her failing relationship with girlfriend Sally and finding success with their band, Blanket. Sally (Sophie Anderson) works nights in a dead end job, clings to her fantasies of a better life and ignores the chaos around her. Vin (Kai Brandon Ly) works as a rent boy, is secretly in love with Sally and in denial about everything else.
Jamie (Collin Clay Chace) works nights in a gay cabaret bar, but longs to break free of his friends and their drug-infested dramas and settle down with a nice man. In the three days leading up to Liza’s 25th birthday things finally come to a head between Liza and Sally. After a failed birthday dinner, the four friends are plunged into emotional meltdown at an illegal rave and by the end of the night there’s no going back to how things were.
Featured on the soundtrack are rising stars of the UK independent music scene – Micachu, Plug, Wet Dog, Peggy Sue, Sam Amant, Alan MX, old favourites The Raincoats, Scout Niblett and Numbers and Sally and Liza’s band Blanket.
