This original version of "The Young Offenders" is actually set in a "flashback" version of 2007, although both Jock and Conor are 15. The same entire set of characters, with new additions, would re-appear in the tv series version of the BBC Three/RTE/Vico Film re-boot, but confusingly, some of their personalities, circumstances and situations would be slightly revised, and re-used. Both the original film, and later tv series could actually be watched as legitimate alternate parallel universe versions of the overall story arc and characters.
