Manchester, 1976. Stephen Patrick Morrissey is unemployed and depressed. He eventually finds work but it doesn't interest him. His only interest appears to be writing down his observations on life and people in a journal. We see his life over the next six years and how this period would have a bearing on his later life for, in 1982, he was to form The Smiths, one of the most influential bands of the 80s.Written by
The title is taken from the lyric "I decree today that life is simply taking and not giving, England is mine, it owes me a living" from the song "Still Ill", which was never a UK Top 75 chart hit but featured on the 1984 debut album by The Smiths. See more »
Steven Patrick Morrissey:
If there was ever a revolution in England, we'd form an orderly queue at the guillotine.Nothing worth doing in life involves repetition. It's the mind that matters. The mind allows us to think and feel and see the beauty of things where others can only see crank bearings and spark plugs.

A film/docudrama about the early days of The Smiths/Morrissey. When this is set, in the late 70's, if you took a photograph and had it developed you would have got a photo and a negative copy. This film is like the negative of the events. It's like the uninteresting part of something special...... and don't get me wrong . The Smiths were special, in every sense of the word. Shame, what could have been..........
