Coming-of-age comedy examines some of the challenges of growing up through the eyes of a teenaged British male.

Oliver Tate, a fifteen-year old boy from the Welsh city of Swansea, struggles to maintain a modicum of popularity at his school whilst coping with the challenges of growing up. Infatuated with classmate Jordana, Oliver is thrust into a romantic adventure when the young woman takes a liking to him, spawning an all-new laundry list of emotional obstacles to tackle that are ultimately compounded by his parents' relationship troubles and Jordana's mother's brush with mortality in the form of a life-threatening brain tumor.
