A dark comedy about growing up in 1980's Nottingham and finding a friend you'd die for but you just end up killing each other slowly. Contains glue sniffing, having a right laugh, Lynx deodorant, Robocop, Carltonian spazmos, some of the best hip-hop ever put to wax, house parties and Goose Fair. Starring Nottingham's own James Hooton (Sam Dingle, Emmerdale), Kent Riley (Zac Ramsey, Hollyoakes) and a whole bunch of other actors who know the difference between Sneinton and Bakersfield. So get ya' sen down there, ya' get meh duck?
