Believing that this is the last summer of their childhoods, Dane, Junior, Kai, Bishop and Bayo set out to achieve their dreams while dealing with family, romance and identity.
Written by playwright Theresa Ikoko, the show is based on Grime Kids: The Inside Story of the Global Grime Takeover by Roll Deep alumnus DJ Takeover.
