The film follows five former breakdancers as they reflect on their youthful rites of passage through the vibrant Hip Hop scene of the early 1980s and how it allowed them to escape the confines of life on inner city council estates. As the wild energy of the scene burned out their adolescent dreams met the realities of adulthood. But the scene had a lasting legacy on their lives – once a B Boy, always a B Boy… and then a tragic event gives them an unexpected chance to recapture the past.

Full of archive footage of b boy crews and battles NG83 When We Were B Boys shines a light on this important but forgotten era in British youth culture.
