A chance meeting at a drug deal gone awry and it's love at first sight for 18 year-olds Adam Kelvin and Ailsa McCann. Seduced by the temptation of a Bohemian life soaked in erotic abandon, Adam quickly leaves his unstable and overbearing mother and stiflingly dull supermarket job for the basement of Ailsa's basement flat at her spectral parents' giant house in Edinburgh's New Town. Ensconced with Ailsa, Adam soon discovers a deep paranoid obsession for which he is absolutely ill-prepared. The quiet tension, interrupted by violent outbursts and events, builds into a shuddering climax with a long, torturous aftermath. Set against a backdrop of Edinburgh in the early 1980s, "Ed Royal" is a story of a city quietly divided by class and of an innocence quickly and cruelly destroyed by mind games and frightening desire.
