"Running's always been a big thing in our family, especially running away from the police"

Sir Tom Courtenay’s first film role as an anti-authority anti-hero, an early role for James Bolam and glimpses of 
James Fox, John Thaw and Frank Finlay.

A rebellious youth, sentenced to Borstal for robbing a bakery, rises through the ranks of the institution through his prowess as a long distance runnier. During his solitary runs, reveries of his life and times before his incarceration lead him to re-evaluate his privileged status as the Governor's prize runner. 

“A landmark in British cinema which not only launched Courtenay’s career, but also continued the trend of assertively incorporating contemporary social issues into film drama”
