One Week of Summer
Johnny and George are two fresh-faced eighteen-year-olds, determined to make the most of their last summer of freedom before heading out into the big, bad world. The boys leave their hometown of Nottingham to search for excitement among the bright lights of London, having booked tickets to see one of their favourite bands in concert.
These best-laid schemes are soon derailed, however, when party-mad Johnny meets Lara, a beautiful stranger on her way to Spain for a relaxing holiday alone.

What neither boy knows, however, is that Lara is trying to escape some demons of her own, and what initially seems like a relaxing week in the sun, turns out to be the ultimate test of Johnny and George’s friendship.
