As a youth, Alan Darcy (Bob Hoskins) avoided getting sucked into violent gang life in Nottingham by taking out his aggression at a boxing club. Years later, the same grim temptations of crime and drugs from his upbringing threaten to lure a new generation of young public housing residents into a downward spiral.
