Award-winning writer-director Mark Herman follows up his acclaimed hit LITTLE VOICE with PURELY BELTER, a heart-warming comedy about two boys who won't give up on the pursuit of their dreams.
Gerry (Chris Beattie) and Sewell (Greg McLane) are broke - Gerry's still at school and his best mate Sewell is unemployed. They both wish for better things in life. Owning two season tickets to their beloved football club is their biggest dream of all. The ticket cost £1000 - they're £1000 short. But there nothing if not resourceful, and they set themselves a mission to raise the cash.
While they think up increasingly outlandish money-making schemes - from selling household junk to shoplifting and the odd bit of housebreaking - real life begins to interfere - with the pair's final scam going hilariously awry and landing them in jail, only to discover in a sweet twist of irony that their punishment gets them exactly where they want to be.
PURELY BELTER was popular at international film festivals and screenings included Edinburgh, Vancouver and Dinard as well as a prestigious slot in Directors' Fortnight at the Cannes Film Festival.
BONUS FEATURE: Short film UNUSUAL GROUND FLOOR CONVERSION (approx 12 mins) from director Mark Herman.
