It's the height of World War II. Britain is being ravaged by bombs, and most young men are off fighting. Gordon wishes he was too. Maybe then he wouldn't get bullied for having a cowardly family....
Gordon's dad didn't serve in World War I, and now his older brother, Raymond, isn't serving in World War II - he's gone missing. When Gordon finds a revolver hidden in his house, he tracks Raymond down but ends up involved in more than he'd bargained for.
Raymond enlists Gordon's help to deliver and collect some 'packages'. But is the work actually for the government? And will it have terrible consequences?
