This portrait of the eighties music scene is viewed through the eyes of Tony Wilson, a young Cambridge graduate and TV presenter, who--inspired by the Sex Pistols first Manchester gig--founds the now world-famous Factory Records and the Haçienda nightclub. The bands he signs include Joy Division and The Happy Mondays--who became seminal artists of their time--whilst the Haçienda transforms Manchester, a declining industrial city, into "Mad-chester"--the place to be.
