Shy Dublin teenager Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) feels like an outsider after his parents' money woes force him to transfer to a new, rough-and-tumble school. One day, he spots the trendy Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and, unable to think of a reason to talk to her, asks her to star in the first music video for his band. She agrees, which puts Conor in a bind since said band does not yet exist. Together with his friend Darren (Ben Carolan), he starts a glam-rock-inspired outfit as he falls deeper in love with the enigmatic Raphina. John Carney (Once, Begin Again) wrote and directed this crowd-pleasing musical drama set in 1985 Ireland.
