Georgie, a dreamy 12-year-old girl, lives happily alone in her London flat, filling it with magic. Suddenly, her estranged father turns up and forces her to confront reality.
Georgie is a 12-year-old from the outskirts of London, who’s been raised by her beloved mum. Funny, gobby and resourceful, Georgie decides to live on her own after her mum tragically dies, and she’s doing a good job of convincing the world and herself that she’s coping. Nicking bikes with her mate Ali to pay the rent, Georgie has tricked social workers into believing that her uncle is living with her. What’s more, her house is probably the cleanest on the estate, everything scrubbed and pristine just as mum left it.
Then comes a knock at the door. “Are you Georgie?” “Who’s asking?” The boyish 30-year-old with bleached hair is Jason, Georgie’s dad. It’s been that long she doesn’t recognize him. Georgie and Ali try to get rid of this uninvited guest, but Jason stubbornly hangs around like a tea stain at the bottom of a mug.
What does he want? Somewhere to crash? To help? Or maybe he’s here to kill them in their beds, wonders Ali.
Whatever his motivation, Georgie rejects Jason’s clumsy attempts to look after her – the burnt garlic bread and rubbish spicy pasta. She gets annoyed with Ali for falling for Jason’s charm. But she must decide for herself if she can trust this unknown quantity calling himself dad. And what Jason wants to know is; what’s in the room Georgie keeps hidden away with a padlock?
