From VARIETY REVIEWS "When the mother of three boys (all from different fathers) dies, her middle son, pubescent Casey (up-and-coming young thesp Thomas Brodie Sangster), kidnaps his younger brother, 10-month-old Severino (played by Cory Smith, Kian Smith and Lewis Ryan Dickinson), from care. Casey then compels his older sib, H (Aaron Taylor), to help them run away to Scotland to find Casey's long-gone dad. Budding criminal H would rather not go but has little choice, as Casey has stolen some money from him and sent it ahead to a post office box in Inverness.

En route, they have various scrapes and hook up with two similarly adrift, emotionally neglected girls, mouthy Venetia (Michelle Asante, especially good) and more stable Seema (Mandeep Dhillon), and romantic feelings blossom between H and Venetia. The kids find shelter in an abandoned rural cottage H heard about from soldier Lenny (Aymen Hamdouchi), who's terribly excited about becoming a dad for the first time, therefore spelling disaster for him" I loved this film and was moved to tears by the storyline. It could have been more hard hitting but that would have meant that many of the young audience who its aimed at wouldn't have been able to watch it. Beautifully acted especially by Michelle Asante and Thomas Sangster. Marc Munden is a wonderful director also. I hope it gets worldwide release
