Carlin (Ray Winstone) ends up in juvenile jail after pleading guilty to his brother's scrap metal theft. Life in prison is hard because of the brutality of the guards and the other inmates, who constantly threaten Carlin. But he decides to take control of the situation and uses violence to increase his status and gain respect.

The cult film Scum was praised by critics for its brutal portrayal of life as a young prisoner and gave protagonist Ray Winstone (Black Widow, Sexy Beast) his big break.
