"84% of men admit to bottling up their emotions.
Suicide is the biggest killer of men under 45."
Like an all-consuming fog, depression has invaded Michael's mind.
And like so many of us, he uses humour as a plaster to conceal his suffering so that only he knows it is there.
Michael would be the first to beg anyone to talk about their mental health issues, so why isn't he?
Set on two evenings, twenty years apart, Michael, at ages 20 and 40, recalls the pivotal moments and people that have shaped his life: from Danny, his soulmate and first love, to Jennifer, the outrageous girlfriend who becomes the distant wife.
20:40 is a study of one man's irrepressible lust for life fighting a disease he will always refer to as The Shadow.
