'...I'm looking, Staring right into the heart of Friday night. It's pulsating, oozing, bleeding out into the chasms of the city. Into every pore. Overflowing and ripe with full-blown life. 'Time-to-get-the-fuck-on' life...'
Friday night. Cardiff city centre. Owain has finished his exams. Spence has returned home from work. Philip has the night shift on bus 39. Three men in the midst of chaos, noise, colour and euphoria in a modern city full of optimism. Until a single event in time changes their course of their lives.
