A working-class youth, Paul (Harry Eden), struggles through adolescence in London after the death of his father. His mother, Mel (Molly Parker), is hooked on heroin and isn't able to look after Paul or his younger brother, and Paul fears being abandoned altogether. Paul strikes up a friendship with a young waitress, Louise (Keira Knightley), but she too has severe drug problems and can't offer Paul a reliable foundation. Paul nevertheless tries to keep the family together.
