Overview
From the director and star of This is England comes this wry and captivating coming of age tale. Two teenagers, both newcomers to London, forage an unlikely friendship over the course of a hot summer. Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) is a runaway from Notingham; 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 strong bond as they work odd jobs for an eccentric neighbor and compete for the attention of Maria, a beautiful young French waitress whom they are both infatuated with. But it's only a matter of time before Marek's dad discovers what's going on...
