His football career over, Davie starts promoting gigs in Dundee with two friends, leading to a hugely ambitious Iron Maiden show. Out of his depth and in debt with gangster Fergie, Davie needs to pull off the biggest scheme of his life.
Davie (Conor Berry) is a dreamer from the council schemes, constantly hustling for his next buck, then losing it on the horses. After a football injury, Davie falls for trainee nurse Shona (Tara Lee) and tries to impress her by running a disco. Along with friends John and Scot, the trio start promoting bands - culminating in a hugely ambitious Iron Maiden gig at the Caird Hall, Dundee. With ambition so grand they go deep in debt with Fergie, a gangster of legendary violence. Davie needs to use every trick to pull off the biggest scheme of his life.
John! How many tickets we shift?
So, what are we going to do?
Take a wild guess.

Fast-paced Award-Winning Debut Feature
Fast-paced Award-Winning Debut Feature - doesn't let you come up for breath. A lot of the talent lies within the editing and acting. The exterior shots of Dundee, Scotland are quite stunning. Saw earlier reviews comparing it to the likes of cult classics, Trainspotting & Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels in terms of edit and use of v/o - if you like these films, you'll love this! Came to watch Kerry Browne - only disappointed I didn't see more of her.
