They spend their time sitting in the Black Lion pub in their matching leather jackets, blaming others and listening to Thrash Metal. They are lost.

And all to try and impress a girl he hardly knows.This is a modern take on a classic Dickens novel - The Parish Boys Progress - updated to reflect the reality of a return to the Victorian Values.
