Tough, gritty fare from BBC Scotland
When two likely Glasgow lasses fall foul of a ruthless money lender the consequences are shocking.
If you can take the thick Scottish accents, the salty language of the streets and some pretty heavy-duty violence then this is a brilliant drama about people living on the edge of debt and danger with alcoholism, drug-addiction and homelessness never far away.
The hand-held camera and often out of focus photography is dizzying, the plot most involving. The pretty thirty-something women have a motto "Men are for shags, friends are for life" but when the crunch comes nothing is certain.
