It's 1983 and school is out. Twelve-year-old Shaun (Thomas Turgoose), a lonely boy whose father died while fighting in the Falklands war, is growing up in a grim coastal town in Northern England. Over the course of the summer holiday, he befriends a group of local skinheads. With pent up rage and frustration, Shaun finds exactly what he needs in the gang: mischief, mayhem and brotherhood. He also meets the volatile and boorish Combo (Stephen Graham), an older skinhead who adopts Shaun as his protégé. Directed by Shane Meadows (Dead Man's Shoes, TwentyFourSeven).
