Adam lives at home with his agoraphobic mother Joyce. His girlfriend Kate has fallen pregnant but following a breakdown of their relationship is refusing Adam access.

"An accomplished and genuinely distinctive blend of spoken word and physical expression. Beneath its skilfully stylised exterior, it’s also a very human story. One where there are no real winners or losers – only two young parents and a legal system not fit for purpose."
