Here’s a synopsis: Teenagers Amelia (Chandran) and Archie (Croft) have been best friends since childhood. Archie has always been there to fight Amelia’s battles, laugh at her jokes, whilst constantly striving for her love and affection. Archie has been in love with his best friend for as long as he can remember.
Just when he builds up the courage to declare his feelings, Amelia falls head over heels for Billy Walsh (Buchanan), the new American transfer student. Heartbroken Archie goes to great lengths to try and keep Amelia and Billy away from each other, but ends up pushing them closer together and risks losing his best friend at the same time.
Also cast in the film are Kunal Nayyar, Nick Frost, Guz Khan, Lucy Punch and newcomer Daisy Jelley.
