Liza’s life has been on the verge of disaster for some time. Now it hovers precariously between leaving her doomed relationship with girlfriend Sally and finding success with their band, Blanket. Meanwhile, the band’s other members, Vin and Jamie, are facing their own struggles. On Liza’s 25th birthday, things finally come to a head and the four friends are plunged into emotional meltdown at an illegal rave. By the end of the night there’s no going back to how things used to be. Filled with music from the band and the underground London scene, Break my Fall captures the ethos of the twenty-something gay community in East London and mirrors their sense of modern disillusionment.
