Synopsis
Tom, a teenage loner, dreams of becoming a rock star but feels thwarted by his God-fearing single mother, Mary. When an intimidating stranger moves into the flat below and plays loud rock music at all hours, Tom recognises him as disgraced guitarist, Max Stone, from rock band “Nothing”, who had disappeared presumed dead years earlier owing a fortune in unpaid tax.
