This is the true story of Jimmy Cryans. A story of growing up in Glasgow’s east end during the 1950s and 1960s and how he became involved in a life of crime. Jimmy speaks about the various characters he met and his dealings with some of Britain’s major criminals. He reveals how petty theft and shoplifting quickly snowballed into armed robbery with raids on banks, jewelers, and security vehicles. But Jimmy’s story also explains his lifelong quest to find himself and how it eventually led to triumph over adversity. At times funny and uplifting, and at others sad, above all this is a real life story that will inspire.
