Tomo (Thomas Turgoose – This is England), who has just turned sixteen and been released from social care, runs away to London from a lonely, difficult life in the Midlands. Marek (Piotr Jagiello), a Polish immigrant, lives with his father, who drinks with his friends most evenings after working on a construction site. Marek is a keen photographer, quiet and sensitive - he is not comfortable in his father’s world.
Both struggle to make sense of their new world, and a chance meeting in Somers Town, London, leads the two to form an unexpected partnership. In equal parts moving and hilarious, Somers Town is a lo-fi masterpiece.
