About This Movie

James' family live in a poor neighborhood of Glasgow in the late 1970s. As the garbage piles up during a prolonged strike by the garbage collectors, James dreams of a better life and tries to escape the realities of his family and personal tragedies. As his family's dream of moving to a new home slowly fades, James also finds himself increasingly estranged from his loved ones and surroundings. The only place where he can find any solace is in a half-constructed housing subdivision in the pastoral suburbs - a bus journey away - for it is here where James feels he truly belongs.
