Synopsis:

Two childhood friends who meet at a divergent point in their lives in their favourite fried chicken shop in South London, touching on both shattered dreams, success and whether the decisions of the past have lifelong consequences.

Level-headed Isaac has big news to share with the disenfranchised Jude: he’s bought a house and is moving to East London. Jude does not receive the news well.

The enchanting tale of friendship treads between both past and present as their 15 and 25-year old selves dine in the chicken shop, showing how the once promising and talented Jude has struggled to fulfill his potential.
