Synopsis:
Jake comes from a single parent family where his father left his mother for another woman. His Father is still involved in his life but never has time for him.

He has a younger brother called Max who kills himself because of depression.

When Jake joins College, he meets his new friend Lydia who he becomes really close with and there is a montage of them spending them together .. after one day of them hanging out he meets 2 boys who are a seriously bad influence. They offer him some weed. Slowly Max begins to drop Lydia for his new group of mates just to look cool.

When Max kills himself and Jake finds him, Jake can’t handle it so he turns to his new friends and ends up taking drugs in order to cope.

His new friend Lydia tries to reason with him but he pushes her away.

Things spiral out of control and his mother begins to notice the change in him. His father intervened and Jake tells him what he really thinks of him.

Jake becomes so hooked onto drugs that he gets kicked out of college and then loses his relationship with his mother where she chucks him out.

When Jake is left on the streets with his drug problem, he loses himself. His mate and him do a drug deal but they they realise it’s not the real stuff jake’s friend Mike pulls a knife out on the drug dealing, stabbing him and then Jake freaks out.
Jake returns to his mothers door for some money in order to get away because he knows he’s got himself into some trouble. His mother keeps the chain up on the door and refuses, finally closing the door in his face as she cries hysterically.

Jake ends up collapsing on the river front and Lydia finds him, taking him to her flat where she forces him to withdraw from the drugs. He succeeds in doing this after a time lapse of the night and comes clean.
When he is finally clean he apologises for dropping her etc and she says she will always be there for him.

When Jake returns him clean, he sees his mother with his father. His father immediately mocks him, labelling him as a druggie. They argue and Jake puts him in his place, stressing how he was the one who found his brother dead and not him and the rest of his kids will kill themselves on their fathers watch. His father goes over to him to hit him but his mother holds them both back.


Lydia ends up dying during the outbreak pandemic and the film draws to an end, showing how her death changes Jake’s way of thinking.
