Charles Bubbles (Albert Finney) is a famous writer from a bleak industrial town. His divorced wife (Billie Whitelaw) and son live on a farm he bought for them near his home town while he lives in a London townhouse, detached from reality. Wretched in his wealth, Charlie stumbles through life drunk, debauched and dull, until he decides to go home again to revisit his ex-wife and child in the North.
