Storyline

Three Scottish lads (Fitz, Seany and Nellie) wonder if they'll ever leave their small town like so many of their boastful peers. The death of prospecting Old Man Tam puts a chuck of gold before their needy hands, which could be the ticket out for at least some of them. Harry, the scheming local rich guy, hears of it through his associate, Frankie the Fence, and begins a long scheme to wheedle it from Seany. Meanwhile, Fitz' retribution on a man who mugged Nellie, puts him in Dutch with Big John, an elder gangster in an adjacent city who has decided to exact a price from Fitz: £1000 or else he starts breaking one finger per week (then his arm) till the debt is paid. All the while, Fitz also struggles to put his aging and mentally broken father in a rest home (one with a long waiting list that only cash can break through). Backed into a corner on all sides, facing the problems head-on seems their last resort and only way out. Written by statmanjeff

Goofs

Camera cuts after Nellie says "You're not wrong." Nellie's left hand was on his right forearm but now its supporting the left side of his face. Fitz's left hand held a cigarette while it supported his chin; now his left arm is on the bar, without a cigarette, and with his right arm tucked into it. See more »

Not bad for a guy from Telford College!
17 March 2004 | by josie-breenSee all my reviews

I dragged my husband to see this film, and our expectations were low after reading some negative reviews. But, I knew Stewart Svaasand at Telford College (Edinburgh) so was curious to see his first feature film. I really enjoyed the first half - it was warm-hearted and all the actors were great, but it does trail off a bit after that and I even wondered how long was left (a sin in the cinema!). However, there's a nice feel about it - I think it's a good thing it's no "Shallow Grave" - what an overrated film that is, and unfavourable comparisons with that load of cr*p "Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels" (which basically just looks like an overlong Bacardi ad), can only be a good thing too. This is no "Donnie Darko" but I still think it's an accomplished first feature. Very envious of Svaasand's success actually - wish I'd stuck at film ! Looking forward to the next one - congratulations from Josie
