Summary

After the death of his grandfather, 11-year-old JJ, who has a talent for running, tries to look after his parents who have learning difficulties.

JJ's grandfather has always been the one to keep his unusual family together, so when he dies things start to unravel at the edges. JJ is worried about his parents but they don't really seem to notice.

In order to deal with his grief and to keep his anxiety at bay, JJ does what he and his grandfather did best: running. Round and round the Olympic Park, aiming for the nationals, running to escape, JJ only seems to be heading ever closer to disaster.
