Skunk (Eloise Lawrence) is a fairly normal, tomboyish eleven-year-old who lives in a North London suburb with her doting father Archie (Tim Roth), her elder brother Jed (Bill Milner) and their au-pair Kasia (Zana Marjanovic). She has few friends but feels an affinity for an odd local man named Rick (Robert Emms) who still lives with his parents. The highlight of her school life is her friendly teacher Mike Kiernan, who is dating Kazia. One day, long-simmering tensions between Rick and a neighbouring family erupt when Rick is accused of a horrific crime. Skunk witnesses him being attacked and in the aftermath is quickly pushed into an adult realm of morality and conscience.
