When Rhys and Vicky move from the hustle and bustle of Central London to make a new hassle-free life for themselves on the peaceful rural canals, they think they've achieved the ideal existence. For the two months they've lived there, they've never been happier, or closer. But when Rhys receives the news that his best friend has died in a horrific accident, he feels obliged (although against every fibre of Vicky's being) to take his best friend's younger brother, Si, under his wing...despite him being one of the most grotesque, vile creatures that has ever existed.
No hope. No love. No glory...Not with Si around, anyway.
