"Dando is a young Welshman in exile, Gillian is half-gipsy. They live in a coastal town in the South of England. It is a harsh winter, and life has dealt cruelly with them. Their child has died in an accident.
But Dando and Gillian are fighters who do not know how to submit. It may be that hope begins beyond experience of death, beyond despair; if there is violence and ugliness in the streets, there is also joy and laughter, beauty and dignity. It is a matter of focus, of where to place the eye."
