It's been three years since the events of This Is England 90. John Major is now the new prime minister and the British economy is starting to improve but not all of England has recovered. In November 1993, in a typical English working-class town, the juveniles have nothing more to do than hang around in gangs. One day, Alan Darcy (Bob Hoskins), a highly motivated man with the same kind of youth experience, starts trying to get the young people off the street and into doing something they can believe in: Boxing. Soon he opens a training facility which is accepted gratefully by them and the gangs start to grow together into friends. Darcy manages to organize a public fight for them to prove what they have learned. A training camp with hiking tours into the mountains of Wales forge the group into a tight-knit club society. With the day of the fight drawing closer, the young boxers get more and more excited. Four years later in April 1998, Tony Blair is now prime minister, the British economy is good, and Tim finds Darcy at his place of resenence. Tim phones everybody to come to Darcy's funeral.
