Zander is 13 and cares for his mum but when she is admitted to hospital he remains
home alone. Unwittingly he damages a neighbours car and has to pay cash for the
damages or may be reported to the authorities.
The Jects follows Zander as he lives independently, tries to raise cash and longs to
fit in at school. His dad has left and Zander is also striving to keep up appearances
with the extended family. He earns a little cash walking an enormous dog, and
at school is invited into the small gang of ‘Jects’. Are they rejects, dejects,
or someone’s project?
