During a desperate burglary to pay for drugs, Gary Cradle is confronted by a middle-aged woman. Cornered and scared he overpowers and rapes her. Disgusted by this senseless assault, he flees home to where he lives with his retired father. After locking himself away in his bedroom, Gary decides to turn his life around, get clean and do some good. Standing in his way is a simmering drug and alcohol problem, low self-esteem and a very motley peer group. There is some dark humour and an interesting soundtrack, but overall I cannot find much to recommend here.

Censor Rating: R16 - Review rating: C
