Greenock, periferia di Glasgow, Scozia. La madre di Liam, Jean, è in prigione per una storia di droga. La donna sarà rilasciata il giorno prima del compimento del sedicesimo anno di vita del figlio. Liam sogna una vita differente una volta che la madre sarà uscita di prigione, lontana dal nonno violento e brutale e dal compagno di Jean, lo spacciatore Stan, per difendere il quale la donna si trova in prigione. Liam, che non conosce la tranquillità e l'affetto familiari, ha nella sorella maggiore Chantelle, una ragazza madre, e nell'amico Pinball, gli unici appoggi della sua triste esistenza. Liam, tuttavia, desidera ardentemente regalare a Jean una speranza di vita diversa, priva della tentazione della droga e dell'influenza nefasta di Stan: vede un prefabbricato costruito vicino al fiume Clyde Firth e decide di eleggerlo a nuova dimora della famiglia riunita. Ma per comprare il prefabbricato ci vuole denaro che Liam non possiede e che cerca di procurarsi vendendo una dose di droga sottratta al compagno della madre. Il suo traffico viene notato dal boss dello spaccio locale che gli propone di lavorare per lui: Liam passa così attraverso alcune prove di iniziazione alla malavita (la simulazione di un omicidio nella toilette di un locale) e deve sobbarcarsi, nonostante la sua contraria volontà, anche il tradimento dell'amico Pinball. Liam riesce così ad ottenere addirittura un'abitazione elegante nel quartiere benestante della città, ma la madre, una volta uscita di prigione, cede alle lusinghe di Stan e decide di tornare a vivere con lui. Liam, accecato dalla rabbia, uccide Stan e fugge braccato dalla polizia. Costretto a rifugiarsi in riva al fiume, Liam riceve la telefonata della sorella Chantelle: è il suo compleanno e la sorella lo chiama per fargli gli auguri
