THE WEE MAN is written and directed by Ray Burdis (LOVE, HONOUR AND OBEY), producer of THE KRAYS, and is based on the extraordinary and well-documented life-story of the reformed Glaswegian gangster Paul Ferris. The film charts the way in which Paul was bullied as a child, and whose road to crime came as a reaction against the monsters of his youth. Paul worked for feared gangland boss Arthur Thompson Snr (Patrick Bergin) and rose to power in Glasgow's murky underworld in the late 80s and early 90s. In 1991 he was charged with the murder of Arthur 'Fat Boy' Thompson Jr (Stephen McCole), son of Arthur. Ferris sparked a furore when he was given a hero's reception outside the High Court and walked free from a 'not-guilty' verdict, following one of Scotland's longest murder trials.
