Hallam's talent for spying on people reveals his darkest fears - and his most peculiar desires. Driven to expose the true cause of his mother's death, he instead finds himself searching the rooftops of the city of Edinburgh for love. To the sound of a hip-indie soundtrack, director David Mackenzie dives into the psyche of a screwed-up teenager in this adaptation of Scottish journalist Peter Jinks’ debut novel. Young Jamie Bell (Billy Elliot, Flags of our Fathers), in the role of "Hallam Foe", makes a moving portrait of a troubled soul coming to terms with his own demons.
