Soul Boy

A teenager in care finds a home on Nottingham’s Northern Soul scene.

Northern Soul is more than just music to Anthony Flavin - it’s a way of life. Anthony has grown up in care from the age of six. His great passions in life are music, fashion and films from the sixties and seventies, and his love for Northern Soul music tops them all. This heart-warming film follows Anthony in the run-up to his 18th birthday as he finds his place on Nottingham’s Northern Soul scene. With help from his keyworker Luke and a collection of Northern Soul friends, he is about to take his first steps as a DJ and towards an independent life. Has he mastered the decks in time to get this
discerning crowd on the dancefloor?
