A wild and original look at the extraordinary life of Frankie Wilde, the legendary DJ who ruled the Ibiza club scene, tragically went deaf, then disappeared. Frankie was one of Europe's most talented and envied DJs and a main attraction for hedonistic youth each holiday season in Ibiza, Spain. Everything about Frankie's life was over the top: the clubs, the parties, the women and the drugs. But the years of pounding music and heavy toxins took their toll, eventually leaving Frankie stone deaf. His fans, record deal, manager, wife and stepson soon disappeared. The good times gone, Frankie isolated himself in his villa for a year under a pile of self-pity and a mountain of drugs.
Determined to pull himself together, Frankie hired a lip-reading instructor, accepting a new way of life and rediscovering the dance rhythms that had defined him. His ultimate redemption returned him to the top of the scene with a renewed connection to the almighty beat. And then ... he disappeared.
