Somers Town


Teenagers Tomo and Marek are both relatively recent arrivals to the Somers Town neighborhood of London. Tomo has just run away from his Nottingham home, with all his money and possessions in two bags which he needs to carry around with him as he has no permanent place to stay. The only person he knows in London is Jane, a woman he met on the train. Jane can see that Tomo needs help but knows she can't be his constant banker, and that anything she does of an official nature will only lead to Tomo running away again. Tomo wants to appear tough if only as a matter of survival on the street.

Marek and his construction worker father Mariusz are Polish immigrants, who are just learning the ways of life in England, including the language. In his spare time, Marek likes to take photographs. Graham, who lives in the same building, sees Marek as a source of cheap labor for whatever odd jobs he has in making a quick and easy bigger buck. Despite their antagonistic chance encounter first meeting, Tomo and Marek becomes friends in their need for social acceptance in their new environment.

A common bond that emerges between them is their infatuation with Maria, the slightly older but still young Parisienne who waits tables at a café in the neighborhood. As neither Tomo or Marek has the wherewithal or the emotional maturity to deal with Tomo's situation in the long run, their friendship of just the two of them as best mates can only last for so long before something needs to change.
