Plot Summary

Musical group Strange Fruit had a bitter breakup in the 1970s, but now, 20 years later, keyboard player Tony (Stephen Rea) wants to get the band back together. Joining Tony is old cohort Karen (Juliet Aubrey), who helps convince lead singer Ray (Bill Nighy), bassist Les (Jimmy Nail), drummer Beano (Timothy Spall) and longtime roadie Hughie (Billy Connolly) of the wisdom of a reunion. But old jealousies reemerge when the band hires a young guitarist to fill in.
