Synopsis
Set in the post-punk era in the North West of England, follows 19-year-old Carty who is good-looking, funny, clever and bored out of his mind. His mother died a year ago and he lives in middle class suburbia with his silently grieving father and feisty young sister, Molly. Carty works as a junior civil servant and spends all of his earnings on gigs, clubs, records and soccer. It's at a match that he meets Elvis, who changes everything. He's part of a gang called The Pack. The Pack is legendary--they dress in a cultish, almost effeminate style that's at odds with the Boneheads and Bootboys they fight against. For as long as he has been going to soccer games, Carty has been fascinated by The Pack. Now Elvis is offering him a way in.
