Arthur is an OAP, hiding out from the world in his grotty  top floor council flat. He’d move – if it weren’t for his missing son. Today is Michael’s birthday – will he finally come home? But the person Arthur finally lets in turns out to be someone else entirely. This teenager is seeking refuge from The Fights – the raging riots sparked years ago by a notorious computer game. As reality floods Arthur’s tiny world, he is forced to face facts – did the son he loves ever even exist?
