"Little Criminals" is a feature biopic by film-maker David Graham Scott about the Glasgow junk scene. Shooting over much of 1999, Scott follows a disparate group of heroin-addicted shoplifters and creates a vivid insight into this strange and sordid subculture. The scams to finance their addictions and the sheer monotony of the injecting rituals are unflinchingly portrayed throughout the film. A father-and-son shoplifting team have to be evermore resourceful in their search for new pickings; an educated Chinese man struggles with his escalating habit and his work commitments; two brothers use heroin to stabilise their mental health problems; and the idiosyncratic DL, recently released from prison, dices with death with his first big hit in months. How will they all fare with the dawning of the new millennium and how does the experience affect the once-addicted film-maker?
