Amidst the hustle and bustle of life in east London, these people are trying to hold onto hope in an ever-changing world . . .

Jess is a single mother to two teenagers. All her energy goes into keeping them safe and happy. Being faced with eviction is a setback she wasn’t prepared for, but Jess never lets circumstances dent her optimism.

Hazel is Oxbridge-bound and ready to fly the nest, but she’s tired of being treated like a child. It's no wonder she can't tell her mum, Jess the truth about what she’s been up to lately . . .

Ben has recently moved back to east London with just his faithful dog Harold for company. When he meets Jess, he realises they've crossed paths before. But can he keep this connection hidden from the woman he's starting to fall for?

As the world continues to turn, these ordinary people will soon realise that, even with everything around them changing, the whisper of hope remains.

Set in east London, These Streets is a powerful and essential story about family, community and living in Britain today, told with compassion and heart.
