Connections made and missed form the foundation of this drama following the journeys of eight haunted Londoners in search of redemption. Jim is throwing watermelons off of a rooftop in preparation for a possible suicide when he spies Sue standing on an adjacent rooftop.

She, too, is pondering a fatal plunge, and when Jim catches up to her they attempt to find another way out than straight down. Meanwhile, Sue's ex-boyfriend Dean has hit a creative slump. His paintings panned and his poetry eviscerated by critics, Dean is in search of a muse when he meets Gina, the experimental prostitute who lives next door.

But Gina doesn't come free for anyone, and Dean quickly discovers that getting a new muse can go both ways. In the wake of a past fling with Dean, Olly is wrestling with his sexual identity.

Assigned the task of watching after his deaf-mute brother Chris for the day, Olly discovers that sibling is completely comfortable with his own homosexuality, and the duo set out on a quest through London's gay community in order to help Chris lose his virginity. On those very same streets walks Pete, a tormented former drug addict with many secrets.

Carol watches Pete's every move from afar, hoping that he will eventually lead her to her long lost son, a man Pete used to know back in his violent drug days. Over time Pete opens up to Carol, and the pair sets out into the darkness in search of her son.

Their journey will be treacherous, but Pete realizes that the risk of death is well worth one last shot at true redemption.
