Sweet Sixteen

Liam's mum is in prison and due to be released in time for his sixteenth birthday. Dreaming of the family life he never had, Liam is determined to make things different when his mother returns - which also entails staying beyond the reach of her loser ex-boyfriend and mean-spirited father. But creating a new life requires cash, and at 16 there are very few options for employment. It is not long before Liam and his friends' crazy schemes get him in over his head and into all sorts of trouble in this typically gritty Ken Loach drama.
