Run + Director Q&A - Cameo Cinema - Edinburgh

This preview screening will be followed by a Q&A with writer-director Scott Graham and star Marli Siu.The daily grind of working in a fish factory has got to 30-something Finnie (Mark Stanley). He longs to be that arrogant, carefree teenager again, who spent his nights racing cars through Fraserburgh’s neon-soaked streets. When his own car racing teenage son Kid (Anders Hayward) gets his girlfriend Kelly (Marli Siu) pregnant, Finnie gains an inescapable reminder of where he thinks his own life went wrong. Unable to articulate his feelings to his wife Katie (Amy Manson), he borrows Kid’s car for an after-dark joyride. It might lead to a new understanding of himself — or might just cost him everything.Inspired by Bruce Springsteen's songs about growing up and growing old in the same small town, Scott Graham’s third feature intimately captures how teenage dreams are hard to leave behind when you've missed your chance to hit the road and run.
