To his horror, he discovers his now 11 and 15-year old sons have been abandoned by their mother and are fending for themselves. Unwilling to play dad, an uncaring Bill is determined to move on. However, although Bill’s eldest son Dean (Will Poulter) has found a job and is doing his best to be a father to his younger brother Jimmy, the arrival of Bill has brought them to the attention of social services.

Forced into becoming a dad for the purposes of fooling social services, Bill nevertheless settles into the role for the first time, discovering he has a place in the world with his family.
