Directed by the acclaimed actor and director Peter Mullan (My Name is Joe, The Magdalene Sisters), NEDS, or so-called Non-Educated Delinquents, takes place in the gritty, savage and often violent world of 1970s Glasgow. On the brink of adolescence, young John McGill is a bright and sensitive boy, eager to learn and full of promise. But the cards are stacked against him. Most of the adults in his life fail him in one way or another. His father is a drunken violent bully and his teachers punishing John for the sins of his older brother, Benny are down on him from the start. With no one willing to give him the chance he desperately needs, John takes to the savage life of the streets with a vengeance. NEDS is not only a story of lost hope, it is a story of survival by any means necessary.
