Having spent the last ten years building a new life in London, coming home proves difficult for Mark; he always had a strained relationship with his parents, his grandmother Betty is now living in his bedroom and he barely knows his teenage sister Jodie. Intent on leaving again as soon as possible, Mark instead starts to be drawn back into the life he left behind. Most of his school friends still live in the town but he finds it hard to re-connect with them. Hardest of all is meeting his first love Alice. They still have strong feelings for each other, but Alice is now settled and married, with a child. Mark has to decide whether he should move home permanently to look after his family, or leave them and continue as he had before. The place he used to call home now seems small and unfamiliar. And there is something about it all he doesn't trust.
