Storyline

Victor, Margaret, Jean and Nick decide to go for a drive in the country but it does not go according to plan. After losing the route on a boat trip and playing Trivial Pursuit for an hour, Victor has had enough. Eventually they abandon the boat and go in search of the car. When it starts to rain they take shelter in a van. After the rain passes Victor and Jean find their feet are stuck in concrete. After a long walk, Victor gets free and searches for the car. Victor finds a nursing home where the patients are abused. Victor does the the right thing and all the staff are set in concrete. Written by James Booth
