It’s summer 1966 in London. Pat Wolfe, a recently married twenty six year old, is launched on his career in a City of London engineering firm. His conventional life changes when he meets Elsa, a Finnish exchange student. Pat breaks with the conformity of the world he lives in, one he has been led to believe is the quintessence of life, a trap, that he now realises leads to a mind numbing, in the rut, existence. He discovers a different world, one he had only previously glimpsed from afar.
