COMMENT VISIONNER CE FILM ?

En Écosse, à la rencontre de Gemma, adolescente querelleuse grandissant dans un monde fait de pigeons voyageurs et de violence. De l’adolescence à la maternité, une vie bouleversée lorsque des jeux en apparence innocents se muent en véritables crimes.

Scheme Birds centers on Scottish teenager Gemma and the people in her life: her grandfather, who raised her after her mother abandoned her; her boyfriend Pat; her unlucky best friend Amy; and her neighbor JP. Their scheme is Jerviston, a place where you “either get knocked up or locked up,” where there’s been nothing to do since Margaret Thatcher closed the local steelworks in the 1980s. Everyone finds a distraction to stay out of trouble: Papa keeps pigeons and teaches boxing, the kids drink and commit petty crime, and Gemma finds motherhood.
