The lives of four sixteen-year-old boys are affected by a growing fondness for alcohol. Mark is the son of a domineering father, MD of a large brewing company. The other three pay local winos to obtain drink for them. All the boys are awaiting their GCSE results and the action unfolds in the course of a day or two either side of these results being published, culminating in tragedy when the boys' paths converge at the club owned by Mark's father.
