From the director of 24/7 and Room for Romeo Brass comes a sweet-natured contemporary love-triangle comedy that pays homage to the westerns of Sergio Leone. Dek and Shirley live together with 12 year-old Marlene, her daughter by the sexy, delinquent Jimmy who went off into the badlands of Glasgow years ago and hasn’t been heard from since. Jimmy returns to town, determined to win her back.
