Inspired by the exploits of its writer/director, former music impresario David McLean, Schemers tells the story of Davie (Conor Berry), a young man who enlivens his humdrum existence in 1980s Dundee by bringing some of the hottest music acts of the era to the Scottish town, only to run into trouble with local mobsters. The film also stars Tara Lee, Sean Connor and Grant R. Keelan.

Speaking about the upcoming release, McLean said "I'm buzzing about the release, can’t believe the positive reaction ever since Edinburgh Film Festival. Mexico, Russia, USA, Japan all have had great reactions - I am happy to have actually made it to getting a cinema release!"

Schemers is in UK cinemas May 8th.

Check out the trailer below.

The official synopsis reads:

Davie (Conor Berry) is a dreamer from the council schemes, constantly hustling for his next buck, then losing it on the horses. After a football injury, Davie falls for trainee nurse Shona (Tara Lee) and tries to impress her by running a disco. Along with friends John and Scot, the trio start promoting bands – culminating in a hugely ambitious Iron Maiden gig at the Caird Hall, Dundee. With ambition so grand they go deep in debt with Fergie, a gangster of legendary violence, Davie needs to use every trick to pull off the biggest scheme of his life.
