Teens Damian and Mark long to escape their humdrum existence, closeted in a village in the Saddleworth Moors of Northern England. Their only distraction is taking potshots with Damian's air rifle at passing cars, sheep and just about anything that moves.

Their chance for escape comes when one of their shots interrupts a drug deal, causing a vicious criminal known only as The Killer to gun down his associate before fleeing the scene. Damian and Mark swoop in to claim their prizes of a gun, a briefcase of cocaine, a bag full of money and a 1966 Fleetwood Cadillac. The boys, concerned about being implicated in the murder, stuff the body into the back of the car and set off in search of a shovel. Of equal concern, however, is just how their newly acquired Cadillac can help them lose their virginity as soon as possible. To that end they drag Damien's girlfriend Kylie and her friend Beth on a whirlwind ride, relentlessly pursued by a killer leaving an ever widening trail of bodies in his wake.

Rebels Without a Clue takes an age old tale of the kind made famous by the Coen brothers' Fargo and Danny Boyle's Shallow Grave and ties it effortlessly to a coming of age story of boundless humour and insight. Featuring stunning digital cinematography using the Red camera, Rebels Without a Clue is British independent filmmaking at its finest.
