Is the only thing to look forward to
The past?
Bob and Terry are two young working-class men from the north-east who like beer, football and women. After five years away, Terry returns to find Bob settling down into adult life, and aspiring to improve himself. Terry struggles with all that has changed, and isn't ready to grow up just yet, and is seen as a bad influence on his old friend.
