In a not-so-distant future London, riots have become the norm. But when the government suddenly stops distributing Concentr8 --- a behavioral modification "miracle" drug akin to Ritalin --- the city's residents rise up fiercer than they ever have before. Amidst the chaos, five teens pick a man seemingly at random and chain him up as a hostage in a warehouse. Blaze is their leader, and Troy has always been his quiet sidekick --- the only person he has ever trusted. But even Troy didn't see this coming, and as their story unfolds over six tense days, one thing is clear --- none of them will ever be the same again.
