He feels like an alien in his own home town. Single. Loveless. Carer for a Dad who had never shown much care to him.  His only solace the music of Ziggy/the thin white duke/ the man who fell to earth with hisspiders from Mars.  Now Scut Kelly is about to have the most extraordinary summer of his life where fantasy becomes reality.  When fate conspires to grant him face to face time with his idol. The living legend. But can Scut handle this new planet and all its possibilities or will he fall back to earth with a bang.

Starring Stephen Jones (Into The Badlands, Red Rock, Love/Hate, Ripper Street) & (From Eden, Northern Lights, Hue & Cry) with a new TV series coming: Northern Lights (Lionsgate & TG4).
