CENTRAL SCOTLAND DOCUMENTARY FESTIVAL

Scrappy Scottish teenager Gemma has never backed down from a fight. That is the way of life in the small-town, low-income housing scheme where she grew up, southeast of Glasgow. Scheme birds either get "locked up or knocked up," so perhaps Gemma’s path is set. But her grandfather, who raised her from infancy, won't accept that. Channelling her energy away from the streets, he opens a boxing gym that he converts once a week into a pigeon show – hoping to give Gemma and the local ex-cons a sense of purpose.
