Daddy Cool

The music of Frank Farian tells the story of Sunny, a young man who lives for his music. Caught up in a local rivalry between East and West London crews, he meets and falls in love Rose, daughter of the East End’s notorious club owner, Ma Barker. Echoing Romeo and Juliet, the lovers’ relationship fuels the hostility between the two gangs, leaving their famlies face to face with past secrets and forcing them to confront their future.
