Synopsis

Sam (Shaun Evans) lives in Liverpool with his mum Jill (Lesley Manville), an aspiring singer. He dreams of moving to London and making his way in life. A chance meeting with Vince (Bob Hoskins) gives him the opportunity. Soon Sam has moved into Vince's spare flat in London - the only problem being that Jill insists on coming too. Through Vince he gets a job as a waiter and uses it to meet Sheila (Stockard Channing), a powerful woman who runs a PR company. Sam spots his chance - they start sleeping together, and she gives him a job. However life gets complicated when Sam meets a young woman, Kate (Amanda Ryan), and falls for her. He finds that his ambitions have been ambushed by love.
