Documentary

Synopsis: David Graham Scott’s personal odyssey into the lesser-known aspects of Glasgow’s street culture takes us into the land of the wireburner. He follows various characters through the streets of the city as they reclaim discarded materials from skips and bins for small monetary gain. What motivates someone to live off scrap and rubbish? How lucrative is the job and what materials are most sought after? The guys who do this type of work are generally unemployed, homeless and have drug and alcohol problems. Many of their associates within this underclass beg and steal to feed their habits, but these folk are making some effort to alleviate their condition by legal means. The main drive of this film is to uncover the positive qualities that exist within society’s underclass but without assuming a patronising attitude.
