Marco (Micheal Ward) and Timmy (Stephen Odubola) are best friends. One evening, Marco is attacked by a gang who break his right arm. Timmy notices the following morning but Marco feels let down by him, especially since the man who broke his arm was someone Timmy knew. Leah's intervention causes Marco to mock Timmy and Leah (Karla-Simone Spence). Timmy decides to leave and Marco insults Leah leading to a fight stopped when Timmy knocks Marco to the ground, blacking his eye. Marco takes revenge by ambushing Timmy leading to a fight that Leah tries to break up. She is slapped and falls to the ground unconscious. She does not survive the injury. Timmy is knocked out with a brick.
Three years later, Timmy seeks revenge. He joins Madder's gang and attacks Marco after he leaves a pub. Madder (Junior Afolabi Salokun) advances towards Timmy encouraging the beating but is knocked out with a baseball bat by Switcher (Eric Kofi-Abrefa). Timmy stabs Switcher, who is then forced to move around in a wheelchair. By phone, Marco vows that he will find Timmy and kill him. Timmy is at last trapped in a van which has been surrounded by gasoline when Marco remembers their friendship. He also remembers what happened to his elder brother and so sets the van on fire intoxicating Timmy. Madder, who has survived a gunfight with Killy (Khali Best), who set Timmy up due to jealousy, retrieves the unconscious Timmy and is taken away by a policeman. Timmy dies as a result of the fire and Marco is arrested a few days later. His arrest causes Switcher to commit suicide.
Blue Story is the tragic tale of best friends Marco and Timmy who, from different areas of London (Peckham and Deptford), find themselves becoming enemies in a violent and insidious postcode war.
