Pete, Tom, David, Claire and Jay are a tight-knit group of friends who share neighbouring flats in London after recently graduating from university. As they hang out, throw parties and navigate the new responsibilities of adult life, romantic tensions begin to stir beneath the surface. When Jay begins a relationship with the much older Bobby (played by EastEnders star Paul Nicholls) and Pete goes on a quest to discover the meaning of life, the true meaning of their friendship is put to the test.
Writer/Director Alex Barrett s insightful and refreshing look at twentysomething-life sets a new standard for British independent filmmaking.

The film uses an acting style, which I shall call here as 'Neo-Realism'.
If Ricky Gervais 'The Office' did anything to British TV... and film it was bringing in Reality-Realism to British Acting, that you as a viewer recognised from coming from Documentary Film.
The Director of Life Just Is' Alex Barrett uses this style of film expression.
The Acting seems very real, the silences between speeches of the actors seem very real.
I can honestly say, from actors of this young age-group it has some of the best realism of modern-contemporary young life that I have ever come across in any British Film. Not even British TV Drama comes this real, when using young actors.
Alex Barrett Direction reminds me of the great American Director John Cassavetes in how he uses the Film Camera and how he uses actors in acting scenes.
The Film does look like it was filmed on Digital Video, and this I think is what really gives this film is very unique look, one as I have said adds to this sense of totally believable realism.
A Film that touches on very relevant themes that a young person in their contemporary lives face on a day to day basis.
These touch on themes on the troubles of Religion, Relationships (in 1 case mix race relationships) etc,,,etc...
I particularly want to give a Great thanks of appreciation for Black-British Actor: Nathaniel Martello-White who played the character of Tom in this film.Read more ›

Truly awful. The acting (with the exception of Paul Nicholls) is excruciatingly bad and the dialogue risible. Don't waste your time or money on this.Published on 23 Nov. 2014 by Hobo
Dullest of dull fly on the wall type film with seriously ropey acting in parts. The most exciting part was watching one of the characters reading a book. Read morePublished on 9 Sept. 2014 by Mary Jane
