Dora Clayton spends a lot of time watching the mobile above her daughter’s cot and listening to it play Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star… Taking her niece and nephew skating on Saturdays and stargazing are her only escapes from a reality she can’t face.
Tom Ross is in crisis – ejected from his job in a West London comprehensive for a forbidden relationship. Mel is pregnant, though she denies the child is his – not that anyone believes her, especially not Tom or her furious dad.
Brought together by their respective siblings, Dora and Tom spend a night in Wales that changes their perspective on the problems back in Oxford with potentially tragic results…
