Jim MacLaine is 18, good-looking, bright - and fed up. On the day of his A-level exams he decides that pop music, a taste of freedom and - hopefully - girls will prove more important than schooling.
David Essex plays Jim in this brilliantly evocative and humorous portrait of Britain in the late 50s and early 60s, seen through the intelligent but rebellious eyes of a young man.
