Storyline

Shaun and Daz are vibrant kids, wasted by their experiences in educational system. All they have is their friendship and, for Shaun, his first love Katy. From the moment Shaun steps into our world, he is bound to lose. Labelled as a violent bully, he destroys himself and takes Daz with him. Shaun has twelve years to reflect on an intense summer of love, sex and loyalty, but Daz's imminent death forces Shaun to go on a journey to confront his past. This is the story of a man full of intelligence and promise struggling to reclaim his life. Written by Sixteen Films

sad portrait of strong abandon
30 January 2015 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

A big-hearted social realism which is a strong meditative piece of work, showing flashbacks of two kids then turning into teens, living on the same estate and spending their days getting always into trouble. The story dips in and out of the past, suggesting the source of current woes. As a portrait of stasis brought on by poverty and a study of abandon gone sour in the face of zero opportunities, this is an extremely sensitive stuff, even though there's little that ends up surprising. This movie hasn't been successful at all, though having a decent cast and handling very interesting themes, however it certainly deserves a good rate.
