Terri Hooley (Richard Dormer) is a radical, rebel and music lover in 1970s Belfast when the Troubles shuts down his city.
As all his friends take sides and take up arms, Terri opens a record shop on the most bombed half mile in Europe and calls it Good Vibrations.
Through it he discovers a compelling voice of resistance in the city's nascent underground punk scene.
Galvanising the young musicians into action, he becomes the unlikely leader of a motley band of kids and punks who join him in his mission to create a new community, an alternative Ulster, to bring his city back to life.
