This independently made British film is an insightful tale about construction worker Stevie (Robert Carlyle) who tries to get rid of his past as he strives for respectability. Like many of his coworkers, Stevie hates the bosses and contractors who do not provide safe working conditions. One day, Stevie finds a lost purse and returns it to the owner who is aspiring singer Susan (Emer McCourt). They fall in love and move in together–for awhile. And the story goes back and forth between problems at the construction site and more problems in Stevie's love life.
