Storyline

On the Wirral in the grim early years of Margaret Thatcher's premiership, the opportunities for thrill seeking young men looking to escape 9 to 5 drudgery are what they've always been: sex, drugs, rock n' roll, fashion, football and fighting.

Awaydays tell about the grim early years of Margaret Thatcher's premiership, and the opportunities for thrill seeking young men are what they've always been: sex, drugs, rock n' roll, fashion, football and fighting. But Awaydays is not a typical football hooligan film, It tells not only of the sub-culture of football hooliganism but about the homo-erotic relationship between Carty and Elvis that takes centre stage and gives Awaydays more depth. Download Awaydays and see the beginning of the football hooligan era.
