A Northern Soul

By Sean McAllister

Named "City of Culture" for a year, Hull, an industrial city in northern England bursts into effervescence. A storekeeper by day and hip-hop buff by night, Steve has a dream: to turn an old truck into a travelling "Beats Bus" for neighbourhood kids to rap in. But reality is always more complicated when poverty is rife... Sean McAllister offers us a tender, intimate and bittersweet chronicle on the power of art, ambition and perseverance.
