AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'Everyone feels better now that Gary Sleep and his dreadlocks have left school and scored a job. Everyone except Gary. Plumber's assistant is a long way from movie stuntman.

'And Kevin Daly the plumber is not a movie star. A grumpy man-mountain of muscle and hair, Kevin needs an assistant like a gas leak needs a spark.

'Together, Gary and Kevin could go up in a big way.

'A tragic-comedy about finding heart in yourself in the face of adversity; finding heart in the work you do and the people you meet, and fixing broken hearts. . . with silicone.'
