Synopsis by Sandra Brennan
A simple-minded young man finds himself forced into a life of crime in this gritty but provocative British drama. Simon Willerton is young, awkward and almost autistic with his strange movements and mannerisms. He is also funny and very intelligent, but this side of him seldom escapes. Soon after graduating from high-school, the hapless fellow finds himself bullied and badgered by the local punks who force him to become a small-time thief. Naturally, he is awful at it and soon gets caught. Thanks to an apathetic justice system and Simon's equally apathetic parents, the young man is sent to juvenile prison where he soon comes to the end of his rope. Literally.
