THIS IS ENGLAND tells the story of Shaun, a 12-year-old kid growing up without a father in the north of England. Set during the summer holidays of 1983, the film charts his rites of passage from a scruffy misfit grieving the loss of his father into a shaven-headed thug whose anger and pain are embraced by the local skinhead fraternity. With a shell of a mother and no father to guide him, Shaun seems set for self-destruction but it is not long before things turn sour with his new-found 'friends' and Shaun discovers that violence is the coward's answer. THIS IS ENGLAND GÇÖ86 picks up the lives of Shaun, Woody and Lol in 1986 - the year Chris de Burgh is at number one, Top Gun is filling cinemas, the World Cup is raging in Mexico and over 3.4 million Brits are unemployed. As Shaun sits his last school exam, the realisation dawns that adulthood beckons, and being mid-80s England, he's going to have to find his own way in the world. Life has dealt a surprise hand to his friends too and no one is quite where they thought they would be... Woody, Lol, Smell, Gadget... they are back and looking for love, a laugh, a job and something that resembles a future. THIS IS ENGLAND GÇÖ88 takes place 2 years on from its predecessor, and continues to chronicle the lives of Woody, Lol and friends from working class England as they each deal with their own separate issues and tribulations. Lol struggles to cope with what life has thrown at her. Haunted by the devastating events which took place 18 months previously, she finds her reserves of strength ebbing away. With her soul mate Woody, heartbroken from her betrayal and in self-imposed exile from the gang, Lol becomes increasingly isolated and alone.
