Benji: desperate to stand on his own, and be perceived as separate to his overachieving family.
Francesca: plotting her remarkable and glamorous future.
Leo: the confident gay-sian, but despite the pretence, lacks a sense of identity and self-worth.
Hamish: fell into drugs to distinguish himself.
Four stories interlaced together. Anxiety masked as confidence. Ambitions as arrogance. Insecurities which fester … until the cracks appear in the perfect façade.
