I'm a film distributor and I wanted to release this film but I didn't offer enough. I hope it does well, it's a great story based on actual events, and enormously pleasing to this viewer.


BY Brian1 superstar

A really enjoyable retell of a group of youth who showed the older, now more conservative Scots, what national pride really means. And the response from the nation had to all worth it.
A definite watch.
