Twelve-year-old Jay's (Alex Roe) life is in danger. The gravest danger... ever since his mysterious Uncle Harry (Jonathan Wrather) revealed a terrible family secret and he was forced to run - holding the very key to human life in his hands.
Jay is told that his father, Marshall (Alex Hanson), a brilliant scientist, had once worked for the corporate giant EmbroGen. Together with its sinister head Mr Salko (Jack Ellis), they had secretly cracked the human genetic code and now, locked up in their underground facilities, languish 10 clones of Jay. Now - it seems the project will restart in a terrifying race to create the 'perfect child'. That is unless Jay and his fiesty new friend Melanie Banks (Ciara O'Connor) can stop them.
Life for Mel and Jay on the streets is no picnic - but help emerges in the unlikely and dishevelled figure of Maggie Wych (Maureen Lipman) - a friend in need, owner of the small but courageous dog Nash, and full time resident of a car on bricks.
With their every move tracked - and with half the country looking for them - just who can The Fugitives trust?
