Synopsis

  • Drama set in Birkenhead in 1979. Nicky Bell stars as 19-year-old Paul Carty, a bored, middle-class, junior civil servant who becomes involved in 'The Pack', a gang of 'casuals' who live for drugs, music, casual sex, football, fighting and, perhaps most importantly, fashion - specifically Fred Perry shirts, Lois jeans and Adidas Forest Hills trainers. As his intense relationship with fellow Pack member Elvis (Liam Boyle) begins to verge on the destructive, Paul finds himself plunged into a dark and violent world from which he cannot escape. [D-Man2010]
