Sometimes you have to live in a world of illusions in order to avoid facing the harsh realities of life. But what happens when the illusion fades away? In the ’70s, Montreal was in full bloom. It was the richest city in Canada, one of the largest cities in North America, and was explode across the world with the arrival of the 1976 Olympics. It was also the center of the disco movement in Canada, a phenomenon that changed the world of music, fashion, and helped to unleash a new, libertine lifestyle. At that time, The Limelight was the place to be seen, the place to dance, the place to score. It was where disco was at its best. It was where you could meet stars like Donna Summer and Grace Jones. It defined what it was be disco, and this is where Funkytown finds its inspiration. Spanning a period of four years, Funkytown, is a drama in which several lives intertwine, twist and are forever altered thanks to a world where successful people are rapidly overshadowed by their own destruction, all set to the infectious disco beat of the 70s.
