Set in 1983, it follows a bullied 12-year-old from a small English town whose father died in the Falkland Islands War; The Hollywood Reporter adds he seeks role models in a band of teen skinheads, but things take an ugly turn when one of the gang is released from prison and pushes a racist ideology.
