Somers Town follows two teenage boys Tomo and Marek, adrift in an adult world, who develop a mutual trust and acceptance through an unlikely friendship. Tomo runs away to London from a lonely, difficult life in the Midlands. Through a chance encounter he meets Marek, a Polish immigrant living with his father in Somers Town, central London. Unknown to his father, Marek begins hiding Tomo in his flat and the two boys go on little adventures, stealing clothes from a laundry mat and earning money from an eccentric neighbour, Graham while sharing a growing obsession for Maria, the French waitress at their local café.
