A film about Tom, a young man from the North East, living down South.
All he wants is to work
And through work to buy what he needs
And through buying what he needs to support his fiancée
And through supporting his fiancée to make her safe and happy
And through all of these things, and all the smaller things in-between
He merely hopes to forget
To forget where he’s been and
To forget what he’s done.
To forget the pain,
…the blood and the tears.
…That’s all he wants
But England’s a small place…
…And people have long memories.
