Take 3 Girls captures the spirit of London's
vibrant but dangerous multi-cultural youth music
scene and the ties that hold it together - music,
clubbing, hopes and dreams. It's about growing
up and the redemptive power of family love .
Three girl musicians from different backgrounds
are at the heart of the film. Lyla is a beautiful
Indian girl with a voice like an angel. Patsy
is a tough talking squatter whose DJ skills
are second to none. Spot is a rapper with a
dark secret. One night Patsy and Spot sneak
into an empty warehouse, intent on putting on
an illegal rave. The warehouse belongs to Mo,
a bankrupt businessman, who hides his financial
problems from his wife Romila, still grieving
the death of their daughter eight years ago.
The police break up the rave and report the
incident to Mo, who chooses not to press charges
against the girls. They've given him an idea.
He'll use money that he's safe-keeping for a
friend to finance the conversion of his empty
warehouse into London's hippest music club,
with the girls as the main attraction. They
are the same age Mo and Romila's daughter would
As the film progresses, an unlikely new extended
family forms; Mo and Romila help the girls grow
up. In turn their grief is healed.
The five central characters provide each other
with the support each needs to escape a past
of gangsters, violence and life on the edge
that threatens to destroy their dream.
