It runs the year 1964 in London, and Jimmy belongs to a band of mods, impeccable young that move
On their Italian scooters Vespa or Lambretta and listen to Mod music. Their quarrels with the rockers - who wear leather, wear big motorcycles and listen to rock and roll - are continuous. Sick of his parents and a job without a future in an advertising company, Jimmy only finds an escape route to his problems with his band friends: Dave, Chalky and Spider.
To this we must add that one of the supposed rivals rockers is his old childhood friend, Kevin (Ray Winstone). A three-day bridge gives both sides the excuse to wage a violent battle in the coastal city of Brighton.
The film is a remix of Great Britain protopunk pre-Thatcherian, describing
The amphetamine-fueled narcissism of British youth during the 1960s.
