Pip is a street kid who's meeting life head-on in the big city. On his eighteenth birthday he receives his grandfather's Second World War memoirs on audio cassette, a gift that awakens the ghost of the long lost world. His grandfather relates the story of the day he turned eighteen, fleeing German forces through the woods of France with a dying comrade hanging on for life. In Pip's own and contemporary way, he begins to live the parallel life of his grandfather, both lost in their environments and generations. Along Pip's path he stumbles into an unlikely alliance with Clark, a gay street hustler on the make, and Jenny, an aspiring social worker who tempts Pip with feelings of love and domesticity. He also forges a small but important relationship with a local priest, in whom he confides his deepest secret: the death of his brother and the heinous act his father committed against him before his passing.

This was an abominable piece of film-making from start to finish. With completely over-the-top plastic characters and terrible acting, this piece of drivel should not have even been made. I thought the WWII flashback scenes were completely unnecessary to the film, and were so slow and boring I had to fast-forward through them. One never feels any kind of sympathy for the lead character in the least, as his life spirals out of control we just get the feeling he seems to have made his own bed. As far as the gay theme, this approach is starting to get really, really old and it seems the characters and scenarios are getting to be more and more unrealistic. Sorry, Rich, been there...done that...over it.
