Starting out as a film about homing pigeons, SCHEME BIRDS quickly pivots to focus on the charismatic Gemma, an orphaned teenager growing up among decaying high-rises in Motherwell, Scotland. Since the closing of the town’s steel plant, poverty and unemployment have been on the rise, and the local youth seem doomed to a life marked by crime and substance abuse. Drawing comparisons to the work of Andrea Arnold and Lynne Ramsay, SCHEME BIRDS is a grim yet hopeful portrait of a young woman determined to transcend the circumstances she was born into.
