Wild Bill

Synopsis: Out on parole after 8 years inside, Bill Hayward returns home to find his now 11- and 15-year-old sons abandoned by their mother and fending for themselves. Unwilling to play Dad, an uncaring Bill is determined to move on. Although Dean the older boy has found a job and is doing his best to be a father to his younger brother Jimmy, the arrival of Bill brings them to the attention of social services. With the danger of being put into care looming, Dean forces his feckless dad to stay by threatening to grass him up for dealing. If there's one thing Bill doesn't want it's to go back to prison. He reluctantly agrees to stay for a week to help fool social services that the boys are being cared for. Having never really grown up himself, Bill quickly connects with Jimmy and, through this new bond, starts to realize what he's been missing. He has a family, a place in the world. He is a father. However, their happy family set-up is short lived when Jimmy gets into trouble with Bill's dangerous

Good money in it,

who've moved into the area.

They're all bang on it.

Next year we're gonna make a killing.

We got the Olympics coming, innit.

These are boom times

for everyone in the borough, Bill,

not just the javelin shops!

Go on. Weigh him in.

Safe!

Here, hold that. Set yourself up.

Stick it on the slate.

No, here y'are. Look, I can't.

T:
Don't insult me, Bill, just take it.

Oi, oi. Good girl.

Come on, then! Get it down ya!

You're gonna need some fortifications!

I got you a present.

Dunno if you remember Roxy.

- All right, Bill.

You can do anything with her.

Absolutely anything!

There ain't many who ain't, is there, babe?

He don't know what to do with it!

Is that for me?

Come on, we know you're in there!

Open the fucking door, we ain't going back!

Stay there. Stay there.

Open the door!

(BANGING CONTINUES)

PILL:
About time.

DEAN:
Wait, who are you?

What's going on?

- DICKIE:
Get the light on.

- You can't come in here.

- Seriously, what's going on?

- PILL:
You got it, yeah?

Someone tell me what is going on.

DEAN:
Here, hang on, boys. Who's that?

That?

That is your old man!

He's a fucking legend!

Come on, soppy bollocks.

He stinks.

Great!

(BILL MUMBLES)

(BILL GROANS)

Where am I?

DEAN:
That's funny.

'Cause we were wondering the same thing

for the last eight years.

Is it really him?

Looks like it, yeah.

Dean?

My God!

Look at you.

James?

Everyone calls him Jimmy now

and he don't remember you.
