Depicts the 'last days' at a disco palace, where drugs, sex and weirdness ran rampant. Icy Charlotte and demure Alice toil by day as publishing house assistants and by night the two look for romance and entertainment at a premier disco club. Their group of friends frequent the disco and each other. All of them are searching for something to make their lives more fulfilling. Some are searching for everlasting love and some are just wanting something different. But, as the disco is closed, they all wonder if disco can ever really be dead?
