The Get Down takes place in 1970s  in New York City – broken down, violent, and poor.  Resigned to the life of ruin this rag-tag crew of South Bronx teenagers are nothings and nobodies without anyone to protect them – except each other.  Armed only with verbal games, dance moves and spray cans. With scenes from the Bronx , SoHo, Studio 54 and even the towers of the newly constructed  World Trade Center, The Get Down is a musical drama that shows when New York was at the brink of bankruptcy but gave birth to hip-hop, punk and disco.  These kids will change the city through the stories of their lives and music.
