It’s July 1983 and the schools are breaking up. On his way home, after being taunted by school mates for wearing flares, Shaun (Turgoose) meets a group of friendly skinheads who take him under their wing. The summer looks like it’s about to get a whole lot better.

Shaun spends a carefree summer with the gang, discovering girls and parties and going on a frolic dressed in their grannies’ night gowns. The mood then changes on the release of racist skinhead and supporter of the National Front, Combo (Graham), from prison.


open_quote Utterly natural onscreen, his puggish face a map of flickering emotions, young Turgoose proves a real find and blossoms under Meadows' direction close_quote Lesley Felperin,
