The daily grind of working in a fish factory has got at 30-something Finnie (Mark Stanley). He longs to be that arrogant, carefree teenager again, who spent his nights racing cars through Fraserburgh’s neon-soaked streets. But when his own car racing teenage son Kid (Anders Hayward) gets girlfriend Kelly (Marli Siu) pregnant, Finnie gains an inescapable reminder of where he thinks his own life went wrong. Unable to articulate his depression to his wife Katie (Amy Manson), he borrows Kid’s car for one last after-dark joyride. Steeped in the mythos of Bruce Springsteen songs about growing up in small towns, racing cars and falling into the trap of repeating your parents’ mistakes, Scott Graham’s third feature intimately captures how teenage dreams are hard to leave behind when you missed your chance to hit the road and run.
