Synopsis

From the director (Shane Meadows) and star (Thomas Turgoose) of THIS IS ENGLAND comes this wry and captivating coming of age tale. Two teenagers, both newcomers to London, forge an unlikely friendship over the course of a hot summer. Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) is a runaway from Nottingham; Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a Polish immigrant, lives in the district of Somers Town, between King's Cross and Euston stations, where his dad is working on a new rail link. Marek lets homeless Tomo move into his room, unbeknownst to his father. The pair forms a hilarious bond, as they work odd jobs for an eccentric neighbor and compete for the attention of Maria, a beautiful young French waitress with whom they are both infatuated. But it's only a matter of time before Marek's dad discovers what's going on...
