Series 1, Episode 1
Luke inadvertently finds himself sentenced to two years in Young Offender Institution Sunnybank View after becoming a bank robber's getaway driver, along with the bank robber in question, his girlfriend's brother and so-called friend - Jason. To make matters worse he has to share a cell with Jason. Luke will have to rely on Jason's street smarts to get him through. Unfortunately, Jason is a massive idiot.
As Luke prepares for a life inside with cellmate Jason, things go from bad to worse as prison officers Dawn and Creg take a disliking to him, which doesn't help when he makes enemies with prison hard-men Marcel and Daz. Taking matters into his own hands, Jason challenges the pair to a fight with the help of his newly invented gang Lulu's Mob.
The only thing keeping Luke going was knowing that his girlfriend Gemma was sticking by him - but now she keeps talking about her new friend Roger. Can Luke save his relationship and avoid being mutilated?
