Jamie and Ste are two boys living in low-class flats in southeast London. They attend school, talk gossip, and sit outside to bask in the sun. They live their average- and often predictable- lives.
Jamie is a bit rebellious, has patchy attendance at school, and has inherited the same sharp tongue as his mother, Sandra. Ste, often avoiding his erratic brother and father, devotes himself to sports and academics in hopes for a better future. They find solace with one another from their mundane, yet overwhelming lives. When Ste starts seeking nightly refuge at Jamie’s, their midnight chats evolve into something different, something transformative, and something beautiful. The boys seek understanding in themselves, rather than the world that doesn’t seem to understand them.

Ever since he was a teenager in Mississippi, Wayland Early could count on two things – his talent for making handmade shoes, and the love of his bride, Della Rose.
But danger forces them to flee north to Chicago. Before they know it, nearly two decades have passed, and both Wayland and Della find themselves increasingly unable to count on anything, including their marriage. As they each contend with the weight of their spent youth and unrealized dreams, a life-altering question comes to the surface: are we still enough for each other?
