Glasgow, 1981. Poverty is on the rise. People watch the lives they had hoped for disappear from view. Agnes Bain had always expected more. When her philandering husband leaves, she and her three children find themselves trapped in a mining town decimated by Thatcherism. As Agnes increasingly turns to alcohol for comfort, her children try their best to save her. Yet one by one they have to abandon her in order to save themselves. But Shuggie believes that if he tries his hardest, he can be normal like the other boys and help his mother escape this hopeless place.
