Robert's Story

Episode 2 of 2

Contemporary drama. Sixteen-year-old Robert Wisley 'doesn't do girlfriends' - it wouldn't suit his bad boy image. That changes when he meets diver Lindsey Macallum.

The final episode of a two-part contemporary teenage love story. It's teenage love as it really is. Painful, yes, but also full of humanity, hope and desire. A positive, truthful and definitive representation of teenagers today.

Sixteen-year-old Robert Wisley 'doesn't do girlfriends'; he's the king pin and it wouldn't suit his bad boy image. That changes when he meets Lindsey Macallum, the Olympic diving hopeful who becomes pregnant with his baby. Robert is forced to confront what it is that he wants from life and, despite facing strong opposition from both family and friends, he surprises himself and Lindsey by embracing the idea of a baby. Why shouldn't they go for it? They are in love and ready for anything.

As they wait for the baby to arrive and settle into domestic routines, Robert comes to realise that his traditional views of parenting are in opposition to Lindsey's, and it's tougher than either of them imagined to keep hold of their dreams and ideals.
