Drama based on the novel by Michael Noonan. They share the same birth month, so the orphanage calls them December Boys. But these teens Maps (Daniel Radcliffe), Spit (James Fraser), Sparks (Christian Byers) and Misty (Lee Cormie) have much more in common. With no hopes of ever joining a family, they form their own familial bonds. Then the unexpected news comes that a young couple may adopt one of them, and the long-time pals suddenly share something else - a rivalry to be the chosen one.
