"About A Boy" tells the story of Will, a rich, child-free and irresponsible Londoner in his thirties, who in search of available women, invents an imaginary son and starts attending single parent meetings. As a result of one of his liaisons he meets Marcus, a strange twelve-year-old boy with problems at school. Gradually, Will and Marcus become friends and, as Will teaches Marcus how to be a cool kid, Marcus helps Will to finally grow up. About a Boy website.
