Combing his characteristic savage humor with hard-talking drama, Irvine Welsh has adapted three of his short stories into one powerful, explicit and savagely funny film. The Acid House reaches into the hearts and minds of the 'chemical generation' and delves into the dark, hidden corners of the human psyche. Get ready to take the trip.
The Granton Star Cause:
Boab Coyle is on a cushy number. He lives at home with his parents. He has a place in this beloved Granton Star football team and he's got a gorgeous girlfriend. But a chance meeting with God changes all that - for good!
A Soft Touch:
Meet Johnny - he's a soft touch, who is all too easily manipulated by those around him. So what will he do when he comes up against his totally psychotic neighbor Larry, who takes everything, including his wife!
The Acid House:
Coco Bryce is a 'Hibs Boy', with passion for raves and chemical excess. But one night he takes one tab too many and an electrical storm trips his mind into that of middle-class couple, Rory and Jenny's, newly born baby. But what of the old Coco and how do you deal with a drunken, foul-mouthed baby?
