Shaun (Carlyle) looks after wheelchair bound Daz (Evets) in an impoverished ex-mining community in Derbyshire. Daz is mouthy, bitter and demanding while Shaun is silent, subservient and guilt-ridden – they clearly share past secrets. When Daz's health deteriorates, Shaun is forced to confront his past and his future with Daz's troubled son Daniel (Socha) and old girlfriend Katy (Blake). A grim but humourous portrait of platonic friendship.
