Ben is 18 and tired of living in the suburbs. As there's little sexual adventure to be found there, he decides to run away from both A-levels and his comfortable home - to a new life in London. When the friend he'd hoped to stay with is away, Ben is forced to spend the night on the streets, cold and afraid. He's befriended by Lee, a homeless Scottish lad who offers him a friendly ear and the comfort of his sleeping bag.
Both young men become involved in a web of prostitution and sexual conspiracies, but Ben alone is taken hostage by a mysterious client and held ransom. Lee takes it upon himself to unravel the mystery, help Ben escape and uncover the identity of the kidnapper.
