The Wee Man

2011, 90 minutes

Gangster Blockbuster

This is a story based on the real life of an ordinary young kid from decent hardworking parents, brought up in the notorious area of Black Hill, Glasgow and his journey through his teenage years to manhood. The story is set in the sixties, Paul Ferris, an 11-year-old boy, already has learned that life on the street is tough. Everybody knows his place. Poverty breeds corruption, crime, violence and bullying. Black Hill was top of the list. Paul had to witness drunken men fighting on the streets, a corrupt police force, which dealt with the violence with their own kind of violence. For instance, six bully policemen kicking some guy half to death, why no one dares to ask questions? Paul’s father instilled in him, know nothing, say nothing, do nothing, and you can survive. Never grass. As far as Arthur knew, Paul was never comfortable working for The Godfather and he hated his son, a fat slob, who lived off his father’s reputation and bullied people for affect.
