It's a lonely life for Stan, struggling with the loss of his father, and with bullies at his new school. One autumn afternoon his bike breaks on the local common, and a boy he's never met before stops to fix it. This is Charlie, a Romany boy who lives on the Traveller site on the outskirts of town. Fearless, clever, older, Charlie is everything Stan wants to be. But in a world that offers them such different prospects, does their friendship stand a fighting chance?

When the two meet again as adults in London, Stan is revelling in all the city has to offer, while Charlie faces obstacles at every turn. Will Stan be there for the man who once showed him the meaning of loyalty?
