The Boat That Rocked is an ensemble comedy, where the romance between the young people of the '60s and the pop music. It's about a band of rogue DJs that captivated Britain, playing the music that defines a generation and standing up to a government that incomprehensibly prefers jazz.

In 1966 British pop music's finest era the BBC played just two hours of rock and roll every week. But pirate radio played rock and pop from the high seas 24 hours a day. And 25 million people, more than half the population of Britain, listened to the pirates every single day.

Meanwhile, pirate stations have come to the attention of government minister Dormandy (Kenneth Branagh) who is out for the blood of these lawbreakers. In an era when the stuffy corridors of power stifle anything approaching youthful exuberance, Dormandy seizes the chance to score a political goal and The Marine Broadcasting Offences Act is passed in an effort to outlaw the pirates and remove their ghastly influence from the land once and for all.
