Sam’s life takes a path, leading him into a dark, forbidden world. What Sam does not realise, is that path had already begun.
Sam Morgan has lived in Whitechurch, a tower block on Newbridge estate, for as long as he can remember. Aged eleven, he can see why his mother is changing, because Billy, his latest stepfather, makes her drink more, and when she drinks, she isn’t mom anymore.
At the age of thirteen, along with his mother and sister, he moves across the city to start a new life without Billy. Things are better, mom still drinks, and there are no more late night visits from ‘Dad.’
Sam discovers a friend in Michael, a neighbour across the street, and a place to escape.
Then unexpectedly, Billy turns up, and the painful routine begins again.
A tragic accident shakes Sam to the core, leaving him guilt ridden and more isolated than before.
Learning the truth about his mother’s past, and feeling confused over his sexuality, life no longer makes sense. Rejected by Michael, Sam begins to come apart, sending him on a journey in search for the ‘real’ father who left him behind. His journey leads him to Ben, a troubled teen with his own story to tell, and a dark impermissible place Sam has already tasted.
