Ratcatcher
Zabaltegi - Festivals Top

the action takes place in Glasgow during the mdid-70s. 12-year-old James Gillespie watches his world change while his family waits to be given a council house in a better area. Obsessed by a secret, he incrasingly isolates himself from his family, creating a world of his own at a nearby canal, amongst the mounting rubbish due to a protacted refuse worker's strike. James' fascination with the canal escalates and he finds himself drawn to it time and again. It's here that he meets the vulnerable 14-year-old, Margaret Anne, who expresses her need for love in all the wrong ways, and befriends Kenny, who possesses an unusual innocence in spite of the harsh surroundings.
