English rock band The Smiths has left an impact on millions and the group’s sudden break-up in 1987 left many teens and young adults in shock. Coming of age flick Shoplifters of the World takes place right after the break-up and sees four friends that “go on a wild journey of self-discovery that will transform them forever,” while a man holds a radio DJ hostage and forces him to play The Smith all night.
Check out the official Shoplifters of the World synopsis and trailer below:
In the Summer of 1987, four friends, reeling from the sudden break-up of the iconic British band The Smiths, embark on a night out of partying to mourn their musical loss. At the same time, an impassioned Smiths fan takes a local radio DJ hostage at gunpoint and forces him to play nothing but Smiths tracks. With the radio station playing as the soundtrack to their night, the friends go on a wild journey of self-discovery that will transform them forever. Featuring an incredible soundtrack – including 20 songs from The Smiths – Shoplifters of the World is a glorious ode to the craziness of the ‘80s and the power of music to change people’s lives.
