It’s Birmingham, 1989. Gemma and April, two school friends, are busy with very important business – planning their lives based on Number One Magazine quizzes and dreaming of snogging Rick Astley! Fast forward to Birmingham 2009, and they’re confronted with their worst nightmare: the school reunion…!

As friends reunite, drama unfolds, and old flames reappear…

So dust off your spandex, crimp your hair and get ready to press play on the rest of your life.
