A film by Barney Platts-Mills
Del (Del Walker), a young apprentice, and his 15-year-old girlfriend Irene (Anne Gooding) have no money and nowhere to go. Angry and frustrated, they turn to Bronco Bullfrog – fresh out of borstal and living an independent lifestyle – for a taste of fun and freedom. Powerful and authentic, this fascinating record of the then-emerging suedehead subculture, largely improvised by a non-professional cast of teenagers from East London, is released here in a fully remastered high definition presentation.
