Meet sixteen-year-old Alvin. Poet. Virgin. Confused. Adopted by 'the Lads' - three older boys with a car called Belinda and four wheels to anywhere - he begins the crazy road trip from adolescence to adulthood. Perched in the back seat, Alvin watches life darken before his eyes, and soon he must decide if his fate lies in Falkirk or beyond the shimmering horizon of the unknown.
