Synopsis

Idealistic Dixie (Jonny Owen) and his girlfriend Shell (Vicky McClure) leave their small Welsh hometown for London, where Dixie intends to let nothing stand between him and his dream of being the manager of a big-time rock band. The realities of the music business — and of London rents — would daunt many a lesser man, but not Dixie. Expanded from a YouTube cult series, this is a smart and winning comedy (EIFF).
