Falling in love with your biggest bully, who also happens to live at your place, can be bizarre. Damien and Thomas are both 17 and are in the same class at school. Thomas bullies Damien and they’re forever fighting. But when Thomas’ pregnant mum is confined to her bed, he has to move in at Damien’s. The pair slowly become friends and soon, the friendship between them develops into something more. A beautifully played relationship drama with a feeling of real authenticity.
