Simon is an angry clown running late for work, Clark is on a bad acid trip and all nine year-old Tom wants to do is ride the Space Roller. In their rage, panic and disappointment, they are convinced of their detachment from everyone around them. Not until it’s too late do they realise that nobody exists in isolation – and all too soon their lives will intersect.
