In 1970s Belfast, idealistic rocker Terri Hooley finds himself caught in the middle of Northern Ireland’s bitter Troubles.
Seeing a parallel in the chaos with Jamaica, Hooley opens a record shop, Good Vibrations, to bring reggae music to his city and try to encourage some harmony.
However, Hooley soon discovers a new music genre – punk rock – and is inspired by its youthful vitality to become a record producer and promoter of the local scene.
In doing so, Hooley struggles with the industry’s realities and his chaotic personal life, both of which threaten to consume him. However, he is also instrumental in creating an alternative Irish community that bridges his land’s religious and social divides with an art no one expected.
