Synopsis / Plot
Jimmy (Robert Carlyle): loveable rogue who skedaddled years ago leaving Shirley with their daughter, Marlene, and returning to the badlands of Glasgow. Foster brother of Carol; love rival of Dek. A goodlookin' good-for-nuthin'. Doesn't have a gold tooth that glints in the sunlight. Billy, Jumbo & Dougy (James Cosmo, Antony Strachan & David McKay): a trio of four-flushers and road agents; Jimmy's partners in petty crime. Having been double-crossed by Jimmy and beaten to a pulp by a bunch of clowns, they’re hellbent on revenge.
