The boys meet pushing trolleys, and they find a common enemy in the Westie hoons who terrorise the carpark.After a few close calls, Will has to nut up and confront his past. But on the way, he learns a few things about what it means to be a friend – and what it means to be family.
The Way We Roll is a rattling urban bromance made of plastic and stainless steel. Brace yourself.
