When Tariq, a teenage tearaway, vanishes off the face of the earth shortly after stealing a laptop, his best friend, Max (Ashley Walters), is determined to find out what happened to him. Embarking on a hazardous quest to ensure the safety of his friend, Max unwittingly uncovers a sinister truth buried at the heart of Britain's newly elected government.
