Knocked up or locked up: for Gemma and her neighborhood friends, these seem to be the only two options. There are few prospects for young people in the Scottish town of Motherwell.

The working class community in this town has never recovered from the closure of the steelworks in 1997. Yet, leaving isn’t anything she would consider.

In this candid coming-of-age documentary filled with swearing, drinking and fighting, Gemma’s perspective and voice lead us through British tradition and kitchen sink realism as she faces anger, frustration and tragedy.
