Shane Meadows directs this warmhearted portrait of an unlikely friendship between two boys on the inner London housing estate of Somers Town. Both boys are newcomers to the city; Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) is a runaway from Nottingham, while Marek (Piotr Jagiello) is a young Pole who has come to London with his father - an alcoholic labourer working in the massive redevelopment taking place next door in Kings Cross. The two boys share an infatuation with a beautiful French waitress, Maria (Elisa Lasowski), and argue endlessly over who likes her the most. When Tomo finds himself homeless, he secretly moves into Marek's bedroom - but it is only a matter of time before Marek's dad finds out what is going on.
