It’s 1958 in the Soho district of London and rock ‘n’ roll is on the rise. Silver Johnny is an up-and-coming teen idol whose manager, Ezra, is trying to protect him from the advances of a local gangster. Unfortunately, Ezra has just been found sawn in half in two separate garbage cans. Set in the amphetamine-fueled, gangster-operated underbelly of the nascent London rock scene, Mojo follows a motley crew of wannabe bigshots angling for money and power while yearning for connection.
