Manchester, 1976. Tony Wilson (Coogan) is an ambitious but frustrated local TV news reporter looking for a way to make his mark. After witnessing a life-changing concert by an unknown band known as the Sex Pistols, he persuades his station to televise one of their performances, and soon Manchester's punk groups are clamoring for him to manage them. Wilson and his friends create the legendary Factory Records label and The Hacienda club, and bands like Joy Division, New Order and the Happy Mondays emerge to change the industry forever.
