Wind back to war time Britain and immerse yourself in a story of anarchic family life. Tony, his sister Anne Louise and baby Susan are children to John and Joan. Very sadly John and Joan have a rocky relationship so family life is chaotic and patchy and then John decides to remove Tony and Anne Louise from their mother; they do not see her again for eight months. Tony is sent to Hilsea Boarding school where he misses his mother hugely and he spends his adolescent years being drawn to ‘mumsy’ types as he refers to them. He is of stoical character however and finds employment in a cinema and a deep love for film. Hardly surprising, his extended family includes two Oscar winners and he frequents Pinewood Studios and fine West End dining rooms from time with Sydney Box, his uncle. A tale of sadness, loneliness and childhood pain but tinged with hope and, at times, joy.
