Synopsis of BEATS from the BFI:

In the summer of 1994, in a small town in central Scotland, best mates Johnno (Cristian Ortega) and Spanner (Lorn Macdonald) head out for one last night of raving together before Johnno’s family move away. Shot partly on gritty black and white, Beats effortlessly taps into a youthful nostalgia for an endless party, and the counterculture movement of the 90s.
