We meet three 13-year-old boys on the cusp of adulthood and facing many uncertainties. Kian is a bright aspiring mathematician who keeps being told he has 'potential', which is causing him to worry about his future and feel pressure both at school and at home. His dad is determined for him to get out of Hartlepool, but this just adds to the weight of expectation.

In Newcastle, Liam is on track to gain top science grades at GCSE, but his teachers worry the pressure he puts himself under at home may prevent him from fulfilling his aspirations. Meanwhile, problems at home threaten to derail talented London-based student Jamarley, but his family's determination to overcome adversity helps him through tough times.
