Following her mother’s death, resourceful 12-year-old girl Georgie continues to live alone in their London-outskirts flat. She makes money stealing bikes with her best mate Ali and keeps the social workers off her back by pretending to live with an uncle. It works like a charm until Jason shows up. Apparently, he’s her father – so long estranged that she doesn’t recognize him. He is absent, messy and can’t cook and Georgie wonders why he’s suddenly taking an interest – especially when she’s doing just fine on her own, thank you very much.
