July, 1981. London.
Shy, working-class Steven finds solace in beauty. Eighteen-years-old, he dreams of being a fashion designer. He’s also gay, maybe. There’s a lot Steven isn’t sure about yet. Then a brutal attack lands him in hospital, and he meets Jasmine – intoxicating, anarchic, fabulous Jasmine. Over the course of one summer, their giddy, glorious, maddening friendship will turn Steven’s life upside down – and rewrite his destiny forever.
