Synopsis

NEDS: Non Educated Delinquents From the award-winning writer-director Peter Mullan (THE MAGDALENE SISTERS) comes a story set against the backdrop of 1970s Glasgow, about a young man's journey from prize-winning schoolboy to knife-carrying youth. Struggling against the low expectations of those around him, John McGill changes from victim to avenger, altar boy to glue sniffer, scholar to NED. When he attempts to change back again, his new reality and recent past make conformity near impossible and violent self determination near inevitable.
