It's 1983 and school is out.
Twelve-year-old Shaun is a lonely boy growing up in a grim
coastal town in northern England, whose father died fighting
in the Falklands War. Over the course of the summer holiday
he befriends a group of local skinheads. With his pent-up
rage and frustration, Shaun finds exactly what he needs in
the gang-mischief, mayhem and brotherhood. He also meets the
volatile and boorish Combo, an older skinhead who sees
himself in Shaun. Adopting Shaun as his protege, Combo leads
the gang down a hate spewing path that culminates in an
irreversible act of violence.
