Ria wants out of this town and is trying to scrape enough money together to get her and her friend, Kaz, away to the coast. While Joseph wants out of this life as he struggles to come to terms with the death of his wife.

With no parents in the picture, Ria has become a surrogate mum to her friend. And although she shoulders the responsibility willingly, she's young herself and has moments where she longs for escape from the daily grind - something she does through her music and her imagination. With no kids or responsibilities, Joseph has decided to head to Blackpool to commit suicide - it seems fitting, symbolic somehow, as it's the place he and his wife spent the most time, competing in dancing competitions at the tower ballroom.

But fate's about to step in and bring these two lost souls together.
