On a bus driving through the desolate countryside, young juvenile offender Carlin (Winstone) awaits his fate along with two other young boys transferring to a remote borstal, a prison for boys. Upon arrival he finds a brutal authoritarian system completely uninterested in reforming any of the young charges; equally treacherous is the inmate hierarchy which he must learn to navigate. Soon bearing his battle scars on his face, Carlin quickly ascends to the role of 'Daddy' or top dog, but not at a small price. Unfortunately others are not so savvy and fall afoul of the social system, leading to beatings, a brutal rape, a bloody suicide, and a vicious climactic revolt. This film was director Clarke's indictment of the British juvenile system and was subsequently banned by the BBC which had produced it
