: : : Ratcatcher

Story

James' family live in a poor neighborhood of Glasgow in the late 1970s. While they wait for relocation to a nicer part of town, James makes do with playing by the canal with Margaret Anne and Kenny. Margaret Anne is older, and Kenny loves animals, but is slow-witted. As the garbage piles up during a prolonged strike, James dreams of a better life and tries to escape his personal tragedies. His family's dream of moving to a new home slowly fades and James finds himself estranged from his loved ones and surroundings.
