SYNOPSIS: "Sonny and Hazel, two forty-year-old exiles from Ulster, are drawn together after the London funeral of their friend Lester. They are the only ones to mourn his passing, and the cheap little wooden box containing his ashes seems to symbolise just how little impact - if any - people such as they can ever hope to make on their adopted country. They both sign so our two 'innocents' head off in a camper together for the West Country. Their summer odyssey takes them into their own past as well as through a disturbing present where almost everyone they meet on their journey seems to be even more of a refugee from today's realities than they are."
