Herons is a disturbing portrait of adolescent violence experienced by fourteen-year-old Billy, who is tormented by local bullies. Set in Limehouse by a lifeless canal where Billy fishes every day, it’s the anniversary of the murder of Racheal King. A year previously the dead body of the thirteen-year-old was fished out of the water after she had been viciously attacked by a gang of youths. Billy's dad witnessed the assault and phoned the police, making Billy the prime target for fifteen-year-old Scott Cooper and his violent followers. Scott's brother is among those in jail for the murder, and someone has to pay. As Scott and his gang increase their bullying to a terrible crescendo, the reality of a life without hope becomes horribly real.
