Have you ever dreamt you turned up for work naked from the waist down? Anxieties like this began to form inside school-leaver Byrney’s head whilst he worked at a busy village cafe and contemplated what the future had in store for him at the beginning of the blistering unforgettable hot summer of 1976. When he fell for co-worker Max a free spirited but troubled girl he found himself constantly having to play catch up.
Who at his age doesn’t dream of finding a pot of gold and owning their own island? And don’t worry if you lose a few morals along the way, you can always pick them up later on when you’re older and wiser.
Unfortunately, for Max and Byrney they should have been more careful what they wished for – We’ll never be sixteen again.
