British drama starring Ashley Walters as Ricky, just released from a young offenders' institute and determined to go straight. Instead, he heads into trouble when he becomes involved in a street clash and sides with his best friend Wisdom (Leon Black) against a local gang member. The trouble escalates into a series of incidents that threaten to spiral out of control. Ricky's 12-year-old brother Curtis (Luke Fraser), adores Ricky but seems smart enough to know he doesn't want to follow his example. However, despite the warnings from his mother, Ricky's bad boy appeal might prove to be too attractive for Curtis to resist.
