Jamie and Ste are two boys living in low-class flats in southeast London. They attend school, talk gossip, and sit outside to bask in the sun. They live their average- and often predictable- lives.

Jamie is a bit rebellious, has patchy attendance at school, and has inherited the same sharp tongue as his mother, Sandra. Ste, often avoiding his erratic brother and father, devotes himself to sports and academics in hopes for a better future. They find solace with one another from their mundane, yet overwhelming lives. When Ste starts seeking nightly refuge at Jamie’s, their midnight chats evolve into something different, something transformative, and something beautiful. The boys seek understanding in themselves, rather than the world that doesn’t seem to understand them.
