Billy Elliot's Jamie Bell is back in a declining mining community for this otherwise radically different drama. He plays Dick Dandelion, a pacifist who becomes obsessed with a gun that he names Wendy. Dick gathers together a gang of like-minded friends to form the 'Dandies', who worship their firearms but swear never to use them - the knowledge that they are carrying a gun is power enough. When a new arrival challenges the regulations Dick has laid out for his gang, the tense illusion of control begins to shatter. This provocative, stylised drama examines gun culture with particular attention paid to the US, but its relevance reaches beyond national borders.
In an attempt to instruct his students about the dangers of fascism and autocracy, a German high-school teacher stages a bold experiment.
