SCHEMERS smashed expectations earlier this year and scored the highest new box office entry during its opening weekend in September, following its wins at the Edinburgh Film Festival and New York Winter Film Awards.

Along with friends John and Scot, the trio start promoting bands – culminating in a hugely ambitious Iron Maiden gig at the Caird Hall, Dundee.
