Synopsis

 

Twin brothers, Mickey and Eddie, are separated at birth when their mother comes to the conclusion she is too poor to keep them both. Raised only a few streets apart in the heart of Liverpool, the boys’ lives take two very different paths, living at the opposite ends of the social scale. However, following a chance meeting the pair form an unlikely friendship, unaware of the agreement their mother made and of the consequences should they stay in each other’s lives.
