The first part of Bill Douglas' influential trilogy harks back to his impoverished upbringing in early-'40s Scotland. Cinema was his only escape — he paid for it with the money he made from returning empty jam jars — and this escape is reflected most closely at this time of his life as an eight-year-old living on the breadline with his half-brother Tommy and sick grandmother in a poor mining village.
