“If you want a Ned, I™ll give you a fucking Ned!

Glasgow, 1973. On the brink of adolescence, young John McGill’sabout to start secondary school. He’sa bright boy, a sensitive boy, eager to learn, but the cards are stacked high against him. The McGill family’sdirt poor, his hated father’sa drunken bully. His teachers – punishing John for the ˜sins™ of his older brother Benny – are down on him from the start. John’son his own. And then there’sthe gangs.

The Neds. Non Educated Delinquents. The bad boys with weapons and attitude: cheap drugs, glam rock, fumbling sex, the violence and the camaraderie of the streets. Local monsters. Local heroes. Benny’sfearsome reputation buys John protection, and then a way in. Scared, resentful, full of rage, John makes his decision. If no one else will give him a chance: fuck them!

John takes to the savage life of the streets with a vengeance. But as his rage and frustration spin him further and further out of control, he is left facing a blank wall. No future. With one extraordinary chance of redemption.
