Just the day before the Scottish Independence Referendum, Tambakos Film Festival invites you to spend an evening in Glasgow with this social drama by acclaimed political and social film director Ken Loach: “Liam’s mum is due to get out of prison in time for his 16th birthday. He’s determined to free her from the grip of her drug-dealer boyfriend, but that’s going to take money. And the only way to make money is for Liam to rub shoulders with local drug dealers himself.
