Peter Mullan and Jane Horrocks star in a feelgood musical woven from the Proclaimers' uplifting hits.
Ally (Kevin Guthrie) and Davy (George MacKay) are two young soldiers who return home to Leith after serving in Afghanistan. Ally goes out with Davy's sister, Liz (Freya Mavor), who introduces her brother to Yvonne (Antonia Thomas). Meanwhile, Liz and Davy's parents, Jean (Jane Horrocks) and Rab (Peter Mullan), are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. Stephen Greenhorn's acclaimed jukebox stage musical took its title from the second album by Scottish musical heroes The Proclaimers. Their hits drive this moving story about the difficulties of adapting to Civvy Street. Actor-turned-director Dexter Fletcher's big-screen adaptation was shot on location in Edinburgh and Glasgow. Among its stunning set-piece numbers is huge performance of 'I'm Gonna Be (500 Miles)' featuring 500 dancers outside the National Gallery of Scotland! This is also producer Andrew Macdonald's first film in Scotland since the legendary 'Trainspotting'.
