Meet Maggie McDermott: a thirteen year old ginger who lives in Central London with her single mother. She misses her old friends from primary school and has trouble finding new ones.
When Maggie finds her father's death certificate, she is shocked: her mother never told her he died of suicide. In a rage she runs away from home and meets Chris, the leader of a squat gang. They visit an art happing in Hackney, smoke weed and get lost in Sainsbury's. The other squatters tell her about their communistic ideals and take her shoplifting. As Maggie gets more and more involved in the squat scene, she starts researching her father's death and makes a horrible discovery.
