Living in Hope

Synopsis

Posh is a fresher at Cabot University and on the same corridor in Hope Hall as Liam, Harry, Animal and Footsie. Liam is Irish, in love with Reena and wants to go home. Footsie is the quiet northerner who's at university to work. Harry's a cockney who wishes he wasn't. Animal's a sports fanatic proving himself to an over-competitive dad. And Posh is a public schoolboy who loves life but can't seem to love anyone.

It's fresher's week and Posh wants to chase girls and hang out with chinless public school wasters. Until he knocks down Animal while driving Footsie to a party. At the hospital he meets Liam and Harry and an unexpected friendship begins.

Posh lusts after Michaela, who fancies Liam, who hardly notices. Ginny is in love with Posh who definitely doesn't notice.

Posh invites the lads to his aunt's house on the moor. Animal turns it down to fulfil his dream of playing in the universtiy rugby team. But he isn't picked so he comes too, setting in motion events that force the lads, and Posh especially, to re-evaluate life and love.

And of course, there's a very tall bridge to jump off.
