It is early 2001 and club culture has reached the absolute peak of worldwide popularity. Sam Bradley, along with his friends and millions of others across the planet regularly drop ecstasy to dance, gurn and retch their way through a weekend.
But Sam has problems - he's stuck in a dead-end job, out of money and his sex life is non-existent. The local drug dealer and thug offers him work, but he is just using Sam as he attempts to break the stranglehold that his bosses have over the ecstasy trade in Britain.
Simon and Tony, it would seem, are legitimate businessmen running a successful record label. Having met at the very beginnings of the late 80s rave scene on the shores of Ibiza, they secretly control an empire that has flooded the clubs with pills and made them both obscenely wealthy. And when Simon falls for the beautiful but devious and fame-hungry Kyla Andretti, someone Sam and his friends know all about, paths eventually cross and the quest for money, power and fame takes a sinister and murderous turn.
