    A Kind of People synopsis

    It's Friday night and someone's throwing a wild party out in the boondocks of the city. At first, it may seem like a blast, but one partygoer isn't having such a great time. Nicky and Gary have been going out since they were high schoolers. Now Gary is hoping to nab a huge promotion at work so that he and his fam can finally leave council housing for a higher standard of living

    Meanwhile, Anjum and Mo are used to aiming for the sky to achieve what they want in life and will do whatever it takes. Gary's sister Karen couldn't care less about fighting for what she wants and would rather just live in the moment and take life as it is. And Mark... well, Mark is just hanging about as well. Always. And of course, let's not forget about Victoria, a free spirit who just wants to dance with somebody...
