Plot Summary
Life in Glasgow, Scotland, is depressing for teens Ronnie (Robert Buchanan), Wal (Billy Greenlees), Andy (John Gordon Sinclair) and Vic (John Hughes), who are jobless and often contemplate bizarre ways of committing suicide. Ronnie thinks he may have a plan to change all this -- he proposes carrying out a heist of sinks from a plumber's warehouse, which he says are valuable because they are made of steel.
