Summer, 2019, London, England.
After the sudden death of her brother, 17-year-old punk rocker Summer’s whole world turns upside down when she finds out she needs to raise a large sum of money to get his ashes back. Giving up her golden ticket to university, and escape from the rough council estate she grew up on, Summer conforms to get a job in a local office.
Set against a backdrop of political unrest, Climate Change, Brexit, Housing Crisis, Depression, Poverty, Food Banks, and Universal Credit. Our story is set in a non-linear timeline, switching between the past and present as Summer examines her pain of losing a loved one. With the support of her friends, she tries to overcome her grief and understand her place in the world.
An alternative coming-of-age tale for the modern world with sprinkles of love, laughter and everything in-between. They don’t got much but they got each other.
