The racial unrest that is sweeping the United States reach British shores as Enoch Powell launches his tirade against immigration, but racial harmony can be found at the all-nighters that take place in 1968, where disillusioned young people, black and white, escape the boredom of factory life to dance the night away to imported soul music. In Newcastle, the haven of equality found at the Carlton Ballroom all-nighter is destroyed when a young black girl, Dolores Kenny, is murdered, leading Gently to uncover a disturbing and racist undercurrent growing within the local community.
