For reasons that are never quite explained, Fiona lives with her teenage brother Harvey in a tiny flat above a shop. Walking home, Harvey encounters a newly homeless young man, Jacob, who has just been fired by his over-zealous boss. Despite Harvey's protests, Fiona insists Jacob stays with them.

Though initially a burden Jacob, desperate to ingratiate himself with his manager, takes to making himself useful to Fiona and Harvey.


Sam wanted to write a small-scale urban fairytale after writing a number of large-scale and grittier projects. Designed to be shot in his hometown, Jacob was the product, exploring themes of motivation and forgiveness.
