Opens Friday, August 2.

When fate brings Belfast schoolteacher JJ into the orbit of self-confessed ‘low life scum’ Naoise & Liam Og, the needle drops on a hip hop act like no other.

Rapping in their native Irish language, KNEECAP fast become the unlikely figureheads of a Civil Rights movement to save their mother tongue.

But the trio must first overcome police, paramilitaries & politicians trying to silence their defiant sound—whilst their anarchic approach to life often makes them their own worst enemies.

In this fiercely original sex, drugs, and hip-hop biopic, KNEECAP play themselves, laying down a global rallying cry for the defense of native cultures.
