On Friday, a single e-mail blips through the Internet. The word spreads quickly through the city: the party is on. Saturday evening, two hundred people secretly converge at an abandoned San Francisco warehouse. As the sun sets the records start spinning, setting into motion a night that no one will forget. Meet David Turner, a Midwest transplant. He moved to the city with aspirations of starting his career as a writer but his hopes have stalled. After four years he finds himself writing instruction manuals for a computer company. Overworked and with little social life, David spends his time alone, his dream of being a novelist a distant memory. That night, his brother Colin Turner invites him to GROOVE.

The comment below me couldn't be more wrong about rolling and talking and expressing yourself. I have been rolling for 7 years now...and I have expressed myself very fully while doing it. There are moments when I don't even feel like touching and feeling and blah blah blah...there are moments I would rather sit and talk then touch and feel. A rave is a great time to reflect, if you can find a quiet enough spot to do it in...yes that is difficult at times at parties, but it is possible. The below comment is so wrong it insulted me. I wasn't even a member of this site, I registered specifically to make sure that people know not to listen to the foolish comment below. That person is WRONG. I have reflected a lot at raves in the past 6 years that I have been in the scene, I have talked and expressed myself more than I can even say in the 7 years that I have been doing E. This movie is the BEST depiction of a rave, ever. It makes you feel like you're there, the end is better than any other rave movie I have ever seen (GO pretty much sucked) and um...yea, I love Groove because of the way it truthfully depicts not only the scene, but the feelings involved in the scene and in rolling. This movie is TRUE. Period.
