John Parker (Patrick MacNamee) has been bequeathed an old Lambretta by his father, who was an ardent Mod in his youth.  After trying to sell it, he decides to keep the machine. In a quest to gain a deeper understanding of his father’s way of life, John decides to go on a pilgrimage from Manchester to Brighton, the place where the Mods began. It is there he will scatter his father’s ashes into the sea. The film is a celebration of Mod culture and fashion and features music by Paul Weller and The Jam.

“Fueled by an amazing soundtrack populated with songs from great bands such as The Jam, The Style Council, Secret Affair, and Paul Weller (the film’s title is taken from one of his songs), this is an emotional journey that celebrates the Mod spirit and most importantly, the connection and legacy between a father and son.” The Movie Revue
