Room for Love


Patricia Green is a middle-class, middle-aged romance novelist with writers block. William Crowney, aka Cougar, is a teenage runaway who has been surviving life on London's streets as a rent boy. Their lives couldnt be more different. But when, under extraordinary circumstances, William is invited into Patricias suburban home, they realise they have more in common than loneliness and desperation: both have a desire for love. Through a twisted hell of home truths, William and Patricia slowly begin to understand, even respect, each other. An unlikely friendship forms one that gives both the strength to carry on.
