Long synopsis : “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.
