During the “Troubles,” the years of conflict in Northern Ireland, Terri Hooley decides to put his faith in the revolutionary power of music and opens Good Vibrations, a record store in Belfast, a hub of the conflict. Northern Ireland’s punk scene soon elects the store its headquarters and transforms it into a place which, by simply existing, gives the war-torn city the will to carry on and survive.


“This is a story about the power of music even in the toughest of places and times. Belfast needed punk, the stuff that punk bands across the world were singing about, the punks in Northern Ireland lived through. As Joe Strummer said, ‘If punk was hard, Ulster was harder.’ This scene meant more than whether or not the bands topped the charts, or whether you were wearing the right bondage trousers, it changed how people thought and how they went on to live their lives. And a whole new generation of bands cites Terri and Good Vibrations as an inspiration, so it still resonates decades later.”
