Filmed over one summer, this documentary follows three very different teenage boys all on the cusp of adulthood and dealing with the pressures of growing up with one similarity - they are all surviving on under a tenner a day.

Craig doesn't want to leave home but his mum has lost her job and cannot keep the house, leaving him unsure of where to go or what to do.

After growing up with no father figure, Wes is determined to be part of his son's life - but being there and financially supporting him are two different things, so finding work is a priority in a city where jobs are scarce.

Life on the streets means the smallest mistake can affect your entire future, as Frankie knows only too well. He is a changed person now and has a plan, but in a recession just getting a chance is hard enough.

Each of the guys lets us into their world and we witness them trying to make their dreams come true.
