Who is Jocky Wilson? 20 years ago every child in Kirkcaldy, a blue collar town at the Scottish coast, could answer this question. He was one of the best darts players ever, world champion in 1982 and 1989 – a hero.
In search of the myth Jocky Wilson, the film follows the forces that shape his hometown and its inhabitants. In the former industrial hotspot, former labourers are now unemployed, or had to swap the helmet for the headset in a call center.
