Teenage boys Ste and Jamie are neighbours. Both are being bullied, Jamie at school and Ste at home by his violent father and brother. One night, when things get too much, Ste seeks refuge in Jamie’s flat and, sharing a bed, the boys strike up a new relationship. Together they come to terms with their sexuality and explore their feelings alongside their Mama Cass loving, rebellious friend Leah and with the much-needed emotional support of Jamie’s lioness mother, Sandra.

Jonathan Harvey’s iconic, coming-out and coming-of-age story is about community, friendship, rites of passage and what it is to be sixteen and in love.
