Synopsis


Okay listen up, you have seventy-five years to be all you can be!


Joanne is dipped in rudeness, rolled in attitude and is fighting to keep her life afloat.


Sensitive and mature he may be, yet Kehinde struggles with an obsession for mixed race girls as he eyes his place on the social ladder.


Rugrat, classclown and playground loudmouth, just wants to make it past GCSEs and keep their name on the tip of your tongue.


As their lives collide and intertwine, three extraordinary young people relay the moments they 'grew up'.


Three remarkable stories.


Three incredible journeys.
