Region 2 DVD (may not be viewable outside Europe).


Unemployed teenager Ronnie (Robert Buchanan, Gregory's Girl) and his hapless pals spend their time hanging around the rainy parks and dingy cafes in Glasgow, but their world is about to change when Ronnie hatches a plan to make them all rich by stealing … a job-lot of stainless steel sinks!

Hilarious and inventive, this zero budget debut from celebrated director Bill Forsyth (Gregory's Girl, Local Hero, Comfort and Joy) provides an authentic depiction of 1970s Glasgow youth culture, and is presented here in a digitally remastered transfer, complete with the original Glaswegian dialogue track and an extensive range of extra features.
