Sid is in despair. His best friend and role model Tony is a shadow of his former self and Cassie has settled down in Scotland. His dad Mark's overbearing father Alex and unpleasant family come to visit. Mark persuades Sid’s mother Liz to act like they are still together as a show for the visiting family. Sid breaks up with Cassie over a misunderstanding. Mark is victimized by Alex and brother Sandy until he stands up to them, ordering them to leave. He regrets being cruel to Sid, realizing that's how his father always treated him. He dies of an apparent heart attack that night and Sid discovers his body the next morning. Sid can't come to terms with it and leaves him where he's sitting. Sid is unable to tell anyone at school, becoming detached. Tony approaches him, saying people told him they were best friends. They attend a Crystal Castles gig where Sid opens up to Tony about his problems. Tony and Sid go back to Sid's house where Mark's body is still in the chair. Sid asks if this (his father's death and his breakup) is real. Sid calls his mother, then he boards a train.
