From the award winning director of Twenty Four Seven, comes the story of Shaun Fields (Thomas Turgoose), a 12-year-old kid growing up without a father in the north of England. Set in the summer of 1983, a time of rising unemployment, Rockers, New Romantics, Mods, Punks and Skinheads, This is England charts Shaun's rite of passage from a scruffy misfit grieving the loss of his father into a shaven-headed thug whose anger and pain are embraced by the local skinhead fraternity.
