Synopsis

Set against the backdrop of London’s urban music scene, a young DJ, Danny, enters a local competition with his crew in the hope of winning the top prize – a recording contract with a major record label. But his crew’s chances are threatened when their arch-rivals, THE HARD CASH CREW, enter the same competition. Bound by life-long loyalties and fierce neighbourhood rivalries, the two crews are sworn enemies and THE HARD CASH CREW, led by the volatile MONEY MAN, will stop at nothing to win the prize. When Danny falls for the beautiful and talented singer, Carmen, he is forced to keep their relationship secret after discovering that she is related to MONEY MAN’s right-hand man. Caught between his love for Carmen and loyalty to his crew, Danny’s secret threatens to jeopardise their futures and, as the competition looms, tensions reach breaking point.
