Fulton Jones resumes his old ways in the family home after a 20-year unexplained absence.

As suddenly as he disappeared, Fulton Jones returns to his family – wife Margaret and children Rosie and Martin. He went to the newsagent to buy matches 20 years before and, bold as brass, waltzes back assuming his role as father figure once more. Margaret is perplexed, whilst Rosie and Martin are furious with him.
