Set in 1970s Salford in the north of England, amidst a forgotten landscape of decaying, half-demolished post war slums, 10 year-old Alan struggles to hold his poverty-stricken family together.

The film introduces a talented, largely untrained cast and crew drawn from the area, supported by professional filmmakers.
