synopsis

In Doncaster, a dead-end comedy night is underway. It'�s miles from home for Jay and June, two comedians amongst the line-up. When Jay prolongs his flirtatious post-show drinks with June he misses his last train home, forcing a more intimate exploration of himself than expected. Can he resist the temptation to escape his reality for a night or stay faithful to the growing number of people waiting for him at home? The two London comedians struggling with their own demons find refuge in each other.
