What is Northbound Boy about?

They say all roads lead to Rome, but the M64 leads to a ransacked family home and a mouse drowned in bisto. When 40 year old Ken picks up a younger man at the service station, he soon realises Rory is looking for a different type of ride.

After a short drive to Ken’s recently inherited home, Rory makes a play for Ken’s family jewels, only to discover Aunt Ivy’s already been in and whisked them away. This home certainly isn’t where his heart is, and it’s not just the skeletons coming out of the closet.

Northbound Boy is a queer comedy by James Hogan about a boy that steals your heart, an aunt that steals your heirlooms and the value of what remains when everything else is gone.
