Ed (Edward Hogg) is a stand up comedian in his early thirties; he is handsome, charming, witty and lost. Trying to make it on the London comedy circuit, he spends his nights performing in small rooms above pubs and his days making ends meet at a call centre. Ed lives with Elisa (Elisa Lasowski) - a beautiful French singer. The two are like brother and sister - inseparable, loving and asexual. Ed is funny and playful, Elisa soulful and sensitive. Ed meets Nathan (Nathan Stewart-Jarrett), a gorgeous young black artist - blunt, honest and free. They immediately connect and begin a passionate affair. Suddenly the intimate bond between Ed and Elisa is threatened as he is torn between his attraction to a man and his love for a woman.
