How often do we look at people and make assumptions?
How often do we hide things from those we are closest to?
Aimee, Patrick and Jessica all live on the wild Yorkshire coast, in the town of Saltness. None of them really likes each other, nor do they like themselves. Hurtling towards forty, with a trail of bitter disappointments and secrets behind them, will they ever find what they all so desperately need?
Ghosts, ambitions, children, dogs and unlikely friendships; their stories stretch from their youth within the hedonistic nineties, to the mundanity of adult life, in the present day. Stretching from the grey Yorkshire coast, to the white sandy beaches of Corfu and beyond, they are all searching for a better life... desperately wanting to shed the lie of a half-life.
But when their lives have been entangled from those long-ago days, is there any way that they can all come out unscathed on the other side. Who is Frank and what is this hold he has on Aimee and Jessica?
