SYNOPSIS

Teenage Jake and his two best friends live in Stockwell, South London.  Their neighborhood is grim, but for them, it’s a paradise.  Jake seems to be the only nice kid in the group.  He appears to be a sensitive person.   In a world distorted by sex and pornography, he doesn’t talk about girls like his friends do, but Jake has a secret he confides to no one.  Every night he sneaks out of his apartment and goes to the nineteenth floor of his block of flats. From up there he can peek straight into the bedroom of Christina, a 7-year-old girl, who has moved there recently with her older sister, Zara.
