Will is a thirty-something bachelor who spends his life luxuriating in the bliss of having nothing to do; Marcus is an 11 year old boy who is bullied and scared about his mum's mental health. Thrown together by a series of lies and scheming on Will's behalf, they build up a curious friendship.
From Marcus' influence, Will begins to change his ways and proves to everyone that he is not worthless.
