The story of Manchester’s iconic Hacienda nightclub and music venue, 40 years after it opened, mixing insightful testimony from Peter Hook and Stephen Morris (members of New Order, the legendary band that funded it) with stories from famous regulars like Noel Gallagher and Shaun Ryder.

The film hears from those who ran it in its heyday and ordinary people whose lives were changed forever by the Hacienda. Newly discovered archive reveals the radical origins of the club and the music and madcap stories behind it. Iconic and infamous performances build up to the story of acid house, the youth movement that transformed a generation and changed Britain forever.
