Concentr8 is set in London in modern day. The story begins with us being introduced to a motley crew of teenagers who have very recently had their medications stopped. They are a gang of friends who no longer kept relaxed by medication are about to get themselves into plenty of trouble led by gang leader Blaze. When they kidnap a lowly worker who happens to work at the mayor's office he provides the perfect bargaining tool to draw attention to all this medication these kids had been on being suddenly taken away from them causing riots and general unease. A journalist hungry for this story is happy to meet Blaze to discuss this sensational story but he has some requests first!
This was a very interesting look into ADHD and the medications of those who were diagnosed with it , although a fictional story it was interesting to see the history of how the medication came about and how it was decided who was a suitable candidate to take it.
