In a bed and breakfast on the Brighton sea front at the end of summer nine people’s lives dance around the possibility and impossibility of love.  Claire needs more money than she’s ever owned. Christopher needs to see her one more time. Michael needs to tell Alison a truth he couldn’t dare utter. Alison needs to never hear it. Gary and Ellie need one night alone. Archie needs to save some poor sod’s life. Sally needs to get out of town, and Steve, who owns the whole desperate place to begin with, needs to tell her he loves her.

Over the course of 24 hours at the edge of England at the start of its final century all of their lives are changed forever.
