Tomo (Thomas Turgoose) is a runaway from Nottingham; Marek (Piotr Jagiello) is a Polish immigrant, who 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 agrees to let 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...
