Mark has just handed in his final university psychology essay and is looking forward to a weekend away with his girlfriend. As he drives, his mind starts to wander, to the lyrics of a love song he is composing, to how everything seems to be going well with his life and also unsettlingly, his mind wanders to his psychology research – particularly the conflicting views on determinism and freedom.
These opposing views come to a head when Mark runs into his old school friend Roddy and the mysterious Nicu. You will not be prepared for what happens next.
