Following a severe stroke, seventy-four-year-old actor Mr Stone lies dying in a near-empty hospital ward.
His two sons, Tony and Sam, together again after several years must try to reconcile their fractured family over their dying father's hospital bed before it's too late.
They confront each other, their past and the imminent loss of their father.
A funny, moving and witty black comedy by Academy Award Winner and Emmy Nominee Nigel Williams.
