Best mates Johnno and Spanner share a deep bond. Now on the cusp of adulthood, life is destined to take them in different directions - Johnno's family are moving him to a new town and a better life, leaving Spanner behind to face a precarious future. In pursuit of adventure and escape the boys head out on one last night together to an illegal rave before parting ways indefinitely.
A universal story of friendship, rebellion, and the irresistible power of gathering youth, set to the soundtrack as eclectic and electrifying as the scene it gave birth to, Beats is a story for our time.
