Dean has not been the same since his girlfriend, Heather, dumped him. He works in a video store but dreams of the day he will become a successful horror movie writer. This is the source of much amusement for May, an attractive Goth customer, who derides Dean with the name "Video Boy". In a misguided attempt to put his life back on track, Dean is chucked out of the house for groping his flatmate Jade, he gets caught spying through the window of his ex-girlfriends's place, beats up a street kid with an oversized dildo and finds himself on an internet blind date with two twelve-year-old girls. All in the space of twenty-four hours. Meanwhile, Dean's best friend Ian fulfills his dream of becoming a stand-up comedian, while Jade takes a journey through the seedy underworld of Kings Cross, looking for a stolen VCR. Despite all the angst, its funny how things work out.
