The Great Film:  
 
A tender love story set during a hot summer on a South-East London housing estate. Jamie, a relatively unpopular lad who bunks off school to avoid football, lives next door to Ste, a more popular athletic lad but who has a strained relationship with his abusive father and older brother.  
 
The story tells of their growing attraction for one another, from initial lingering glances to their irrefutable love, magnificently illustrated at the end of the film. It deals with the tribulations of coming to terms with their sexuality and of others finding out, in light of unwavering loyalty and defence of Jamie and the fear of repercussion should Ste's family find out..
