Shaun is a 12-year-old child beaten everywhere by his marginality,his not good-looking and his poor way of dressing in some years, the 80s, where the aspect was everything. His father has died in the Malvinas war and that absence makes him a weak and frustrated person for the others. On having coincided with a group of skinheads led by Wood, between sides and jokes, he is adopted as a new member of the gang.
The return of Combo after being in jail, divides the band because he adheres to radical political ideas which not all shared; this influences Shaun forcing him to leave the only group of friends where he has found a little bit of affection and respect.
