Ken Loach directs this raw and gritty coming-of-age drama set in
Greenock, Scotland, where unemployment is high and drugs are rife.
Liam (Martin Compston) is a young, restless teenager, who hangs
around the streets with best mate Pinball (William Ruane) and waits
for the release from jail of his mother, Jean (Michelle Coulter),
who is serving time for a crime actually committed by her drug
dealer boyfriend, Stan (Gary McCormack). When Liam refuses to help
Stan out with his latest consignment of drugs, he ends up being
kicked out of his own house, and moves in with his older sister,
single mum Chantelle (Annmarie Fulton). He decides to find a way
out of Stan's violent clutches for himself and his mother when she
is released, and in his determination to raise the cash to buy a
caravan for them to live in, he comes up with a plan to steal
Stan's stash and sell it to local junkies. As his sixteenth
birthday approaches, Liam ironically finds himself ending up
embroiled in the very life of crime he had struggled to avoid.
