Dir. Bill Douglas

UK 1978 | Black & white | 72 mins | Cert 15 | Drama

Cast: Stephen Archibald, Paul Kermac

Old enough to work, Jamie leaves the children's home to live with his paternal grandmother, but is soon conscripted into the RAF. Ironically, military service in Egypt brings a sense of freedom and friendship unimaginable in earlier years… Having refused to soft-pedal on life’s hardships, Douglas here achieves a very deep and genuine sense of release, compassion and redemption.
