Excerpt: "A movie that's every bit as charming as the chubby cheeks of a baby..."
Set in England back in the '80s, the story focuses on Will Proudfoot (Bill Milner), who comes from a family belonging to a strict religious sect that forbids him from enjoying the many pleasures life has to offer, including television. Combined with his capacity for creativity, he grew up to be a shy and gullible child who only has his wild imagination to keep him company. One day, as usual Will is made to wait outside while the rest of the classroom watches a documentary, but it's this one day when he crosses paths with a delinquent, Lee Carter (Will Poulter). One scam later, and Will suddenly finds himself being the star of Lee's film project.
