Just coming out of his foster home, Tommo, 16, runs away from the Midlands to go to London. Marek, shy and sensible, is passionate about photography and feels uncomfortable in his father’s universe. The meeting of those two boys in Somers Town in London will lead them to be a funny alliance.

Shane Meadows

Born in 1972 in the Midlands in England, from a modest family, he soon got bored of school and started to make short films with his friends. His first feature full-length Small Time, and his short Where’s the money, Ronnie? in 1996, led him to a certain recognition. All of his films are in the British social reality, with a preference for youth, and he has been often compared to Ken Loach. He became known in France by his films This is England (2006) and Somers Town (2008). His new film Made of Stone, is an unreleased documentary about the British band The Stone Roses, and the musical scene l’Hacienda in Manchester.
