Steve is an orphan with a passion for classic cars and John is a talented musician struggling to come to terms with hid depressed mother. Both out of loyalty as friends and the need to earn money to keep their dreams alive, all three do work for amiable wide-boy, Chris, who seems to be heading inevitably towards a life of crime. This is further underlined when Chris forms a relationship with small-time villain Geordie, who is, in turn to manoeuvre himself into the established underworld.

Good film!
13 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a good film. Don't believe the "knockers". Granted, this is a low-budget film but it has a story, drama and good acting. It starts off by introducing you to all the characters, slowly weaving in a number of different strands including a love story, gangster film and coming-of-age drama. It is an ambitious film but I was never less than engaged and entertained. I loved it!
