AJ is one of the best runners in his school - which is one of the best athletics training grounds in the world. He's devastated when his parents suddenly move him to cold, wet London, and he finds himself facing a very alien life, and hostility from the school bully.
 
When the bully's father, a washed-up drinker who used to be a runner, takes an interest in AJ's training, it might make all the difference to AJ - or it might just make things a lot worse.
