RoIand Rat, Margaret Thatcher; Rubik's Cubes, the RoyaI Wedding; aerobics, skinheads... It's 1983, and the schooIs are breaking up for summer.
Shaun is 12 and a bit of a Ioner, growing up with his mum in a grim coastal town, his dad was kilIed fighting in the Falklands War. On his way home from schooI, where he's been tormented aIl day for wearing fIares, he runs into a group of skinheads, who against expectations turn out to be friendIy and take him under their wing. Soon Shaun discovers parties, girls and snappy dressing, and finds some role models in Woody, Milky and the rest of the gang. But when an older, overtly racist skinhead returns home from prison, the easy camaraderie of the group is broken, and Shaun is drawn into much more uncomfortabIe territory.
