Derek Springfield, an 18-year-old misfit, has returned home at the end of his studies to wait for his exam results that he’s hoping will lead to his permanent escape from his grey industrial town in 70s Britain. However, life soon gets complicated when Slapper, a runaway greyhound, enters the scene and changes Derek’s life forever. A feel-good, heart-warming film about a boy and a dog, class and ambition, first love and above all family.
