      Inspired by True events
      Amid the idyllic seaside town of Bournemouth, Scottish painter and decorator Kenny Nolan is planning his 50th birthday party.
      Then… news filters through of the death of Mrs Thatcher, adding a new slant to the coming celebrations.
      As Kenny’s old gang converge on the Birthday bash, ‘Bag Lady’ Dirty Maggie, embodying the pain and anguish felt by families during the time of the Iron Lady, walks Bournemouth’s streets as an alcoholic tinker. Ambling the coastline with her rusted trolley, Maggie is dead set on revenging her two sons who fell victim to heroin supplied by Jimmy Nolan, Kenny’s younger brother.
      Gangster Jimmy crashes the birthday party turned mock-funeral party, where memories of the past resurface in reflections of Thatcher’s reign. Dirty Maggie discovers the party and lies in waiting, eager to take her revenge.
