The Plot of the Blue Story Movie
A boy named Timmy moves to London and starts high school in Peckham, Southwark, even though he lives in Deptford, Lewisham. His mother wanted him to go to this school because it has a good curriculum, so Timmy can’t hang out with his old friend Kiron, who is always getting into trouble. On his first day, he makes friends with a boy named Marco. Later, Dwayne and Hakeem also become his friends.
Five years later, a classmate named Karina asks the boys to a party. Timmy, who is now 15, doesn’t want to go, but when he finds out that Leah, the girl he’s always liked, is going, he changes his mind. In Deptford, the Ghetto Boys are attacked on their own land by the Peckham Boys, forcing them to run away.
That night, Marco tries to watch The Intent with his older brother Switcher, who is the leader of the Peckham Boys, but Switcher is called away to help fight the Ghetto Boys, who are out for revenge. Later, the Ghetto Boys chase after the Peckham Boys.
Galis, the second-in-command of the Ghetto Boys, is shot in the back by Switcher and left to die when Madder, the leader of the Ghetto Boys, leaves because the police are nearby.
Timmy slowly dances with Leah at the party, but they have to stop when Marco fights with another boy, which makes Karina’s father kick everyone out. After Marco gets home a few hours later, the police break into the apartment and arrest Switcher. The next day, Switcher is let go because there wasn’t enough evidence against him.
