Teenager Gemma grew up in a housing estate in Motherwell. In her own words, it is a place where you “either get knocked up or locked up”. This fly-on-the-wall documentary follows the lives of Gemma and the people close to her as she discovers she is expecting a child from her boyfriend Pat. Scheme Birds offers a look to an often neglected part of society.

“This extraordinary documentary weighs the bleak details – and they are, at times, almost unbearably grim – against moments of lyrical beauty and even humour.”
