Writer: Stephen Bradley
Role: Leo

This gently affecting and beautifully directed first film is full of surprises. Sweety Barrett is a big, strong, simple man. When the film begins, he has lost his job at a circus and finds himself in a mean-spirited, corrupt little port town whose chief industry is smuggling "poteen," the lethal potato whiskey of legend. Picked up by Flick Hennessy, the area's chief "exporter," Sweety accepts a job offer from the fatherly man. Soon he learns that the real boss in town is Mannix Bone, the sadistic chief of police. Sweety befriends a local woman, Anne, and especially hits it off with her six-year-old son, Conor, who loves his new playmate. Anne's husband Leo is in prison, framed by Bone in order to force him out of business.

Stella (Kelly MacDonald) is one of a brood of school-age prostitutes, working the streets of London and living in dingy B&B accommodation. She exists as a virtual prisoner of her sleazy, paternalistic pimp, Mr. Peters (James Bolam). Whilst she has run away from her childhood troubles in Glasgow, memories of her god-fearing Auntie Aileen (Joyce Anderson) and her stand-up comedian father (Ewan Stewart) continue to haunt her. It takes an attack on one of her girlfriends for Stella to realize that she must make her escape. However, she learns that escaping a past such as her own is precarious.
