Scheme Birds

Synopsis

Bleak yet ultimately beautiful, Scheme Birds is a coming-of-age documentary, bursting with the frustration of a generation of Scots let down by society's promises. We see the fading steel town, Motherwell, through the eyes of Gemma, a soon-to-be mother on the verge of adulthood. In a place where you 'either get knocked up or locked up', Gemma carves out brief moments of tenderness amidst the violence of her local housing estate.
