Summary
'Glue' is the story of four boys growing up in the Edinburgh schemes and about the loyalties, experiences and secrets which hold them together into their thirties. As we follow their lives from the seventies into the new century, we see each of them trying to struggle out from under the weight of class and culture, peer pressure and their parents' hopes that maybe their sons will do better than they did.
