Synopsis

Joe, an ex-miner approaching his fortieth birthday, just about scrapes a living promoting club acts of dubious talent, whilst finding the only outlet for his own considerable musical skills lies in teaching. His troubled relationship with his wife and son seems to be following a pattern familiar from his own childhood. Joe's father has his own problems, trying to rally his friends to resist the attempts of the local council to redevelop the land on which the former pitmen have their gardens and pigeon lofts.
