In a sleepy English seaside town the gangly, seventeen-year-old Eli Bloom is an earnest misanthrope, solemnly  convinced that there isn’t much in life worth getting excited about. In a bid to motivate his world-weary son, Eli’s father arranges a week’s work experience, shadowing an old acquaintance of his – the boss of a once prosperous (but now struggling) local confectionery business.

"Confection" is a comedy about a not-quite-grown-up who finds himself accidentally catapulted into the thick of a very grown-up situation.
