Synopsis: Steve is a disillusioned working class man. Liberated by the heady mix of music and radical politics in the ’60s and ’70s, the ’80s saw all his hopes of something better come to nothing. His teenage son “Lud” never held out any hope. He’s a Generation X-er — which adds to Steve’s frustrations. Steve’s wife Cath is caught between the warring factions. Her journey — and her direct action — becomes collective action. Can any of them see light at the end of the tunnel . . .
