Tempers and temperatures start to rise in the summer of 1969 when a routine police raid on an underground Greenwich Village hotspot erupts in to a full-scale riot, the impetus of the modern gay rights movement. A live rock band provides the screaming soundtrack to this retelling of the epic night at The Stonewall Inn.
