With the multi-award winning five-part series SMALL AXE about real-life stories from the West Indian population in the London of the 70s and 80s, Steve McQueen, whose parents were Caribbean immigrants, goes back to his own family's roots. The second of these stand-alone episodes, LOVERS ROCK, is the musical McQueen always wanted to make. It evolves around two teenage girls who sneak away to an all-night house party, and showcases all of McQueen's signature elegance, attention to detail, racial sensibility and cultural vibrancy.
