Short DescriptionSet against a backdrop of North London and drama group, four unforgettable teens struggle for identity, self-esteem and some kind of significance in life in this wittily, wickedly observed comedy of teen manners!
Brie is in love with Lancome Juicy Tubes, Louis Vuitton accessories and Charlie, her gay best friend.But Charlie is in love with 1960's pop art, 1980s teen movies ...and serial heartbreaker, Walker. Walker has only ever been in love with his VW Bug, until he meets Daisy. And Daisy is far too busy hating everyone to know what love is...
This is a story about kissing people you shouldn't, falling in love and off your heels, and breaking hearts because there'e nothing to watch on telly.
