An inhospitable autumn. A drunken night out in a Midlands town. A man in the throes of a crisis. At the age of 36, Ben Nightingale is a man in danger of losing completely the woman that he loves, not to mention his little daughter. His life has descended into arid monotony, punctuated only by booze-soaked weekends with old drinking partners. But even alcohol cannot prevent Ben’s haunting by his former and present lives: the past is unpalatable, the present is poisonous, and the future bleak. On one Friday night out, Ben realises that he can carry on no longer. But then... enter the Phoenix. Amid the desperation of the early hours, Ben comes face to face with an old friend, and discovers that there may indeed be more in heaven and earth than he has previously realised.
