Flashbacks of a Fool

Joe Scot is a big Hollywood movie star who hasn't been given a part in a while. He's more interested in the sex and drugs lifestyle and even his own agent thinks he's completely washed up and has blown his last chance.

When Joe's mother calls him back home to England for the funeral of a treasured childhood friend it triggers a series of memories about his time growing up near the sea, and the secret encounters which ended up shaping his life forever.
