The title Peace, Love, Unity, Revenge is a play on the acronym: Peace, Love, Unity, Respect.
Peace, Love, Unity, Respect is known as the "Raver's Manifesto". We refer to it in passing in the film, no character refers to it in dialogue, but it's there.
The main character Felix-as portrayed by Steven Elliot, is a "nightclub owner" with a past he would rather forget-but has an insidious way of catching up to him. He seeks all that is encompassed within the "Manifesto" but instead finds himself dragged back into his former life (I won't spell it all out here).
So, the acronym takes on a new significance and works on multiple levels to anyone already familiar with P.L.U.R. To those who've never heard of it, now you will.
The goal of any revolution may be peace, but "there's no such thing as a peaceful revolution."
