Could you run away from your violent life and never look back?

Jake is young adult living with his mum on a council estate. He has no real purpose in life but one...helping to distribute narcotics to the local dealers. With his mother such a heavily dependent user herself and with him being her prime source for her addiction they have become caught in a web of repitition of selling and using the narcotics that Jake sells. As he senses that time is against him and plans to get out of the country with his mum, he makes one last delivery which ultimately shatters his dreams of freedom for good.
