Scottish writer and former vocalist for the punk band the Skids, Richard Jobson makes his directorial debut with 16 Years of Alcohol, the stylized psychological drama based on his own semi-autobiographical novel. Through voice-over narration and various flashback methods, troubled young man Frankie Mac (Kevin McKidd) recalls his childhood (played by Iain De Caestaecker as a boy) growing up in working-class Edinburgh. In the '50s, his father (Lewis McCloud) was a hard-drinking good-timer and his long-suffering mother (Lisa May Cooper) eventually gave up on the family. As a teenager in the '70s, the violent Frankie falls in with a street gang and tries to clean up to impress record store clerk Helen (Laura Fraser). After some fights with his old street thug enemy Miller (Stuart Sinclair Blyth), Frankie makes an another attempt to stop drinking at an AA meeting, where he meets Mary (Susan Lynch).

16 Years of Alcohol is a moving and powerful look at one man's search for hope, redemption and meaning in his life. Set in three distinct periods in the life of Frankie Mac, the story is a hard-edged character study of his troubled life and his search to find hope when he feels that none exists. As a young boy Frankie watches the world around him drench itself in alcohol. His father, who was always a larger than life and heroic figure to Frankie, is seen for the first time to be a drunk, philandering liar. In his teenage years, Frankie leads a gang. They thrive on music, clothes and violence. A chance meeting with a young woman, Helen, introduces Frankie to a whole range of possibilities he had never considered. He begins to depart from his identity as a member of the gang, which then turns against him, and in doing so creates a fanatical enemy in one of his former buddies.

16 years of alcohol is about a skinhead named Frankie; his violent childhood, alcoholism and his love for Ska.
