When a nostalgic television show reveals a complete collection of Pogs is worth hundreds of thousands of pounds, Matthew digs out his Pog album only to discover one Pog is missing, rendering the entire collection worthless.

If the group can remember the Pog's every move in the past and track it down in the present then they will be rich beyond their wildest dreams. But their dreams will have to wait as first they must recall the horrors of growing up in the Nineties and Noughties.

Bad hair, bad music and bad decisions come flooding back as we hear about Tom's distinctly unexotic adventures in Europe, meet Matthew's terrifying ex-girlfriend and witness Ben's unexpected one night stand.

As they open the badults' box of memories, friendships falter under the strain of secrets that should have remained in the past with the Pog.
