Two mismatched lovers arrive at the British seaside town of Scarborough, seeking an escape from the constraints of real life. Liz (Jodhi May), beautiful yet desperately shy, seems older than her companion, the happy-go-lucky and impulsive Daz (Jordan Bolger). In their faded hotel room, amongst the peeling wallpaper and away from the prying eyes of their hometown, they laugh, quarrel, make love and enjoy their anonymity. In an identical room in the same hotel, the sensitive artist, Aiden (Edward Hogg), and Beth (Jessica Barden), a fiery and j impulsive young woman, tell the same story. As both couples are forced to come to terms with the impossibilities of their love, power shifts from one lover to the other, and joy turns to heartache as they reel from the destructive force of illicit love.
Was so disappointed with this four hander, the acting was limited by the script and at times I felt they were going through the motions and sad to see Scarborough looking so run down from the times I used to visit regularly when I lived in Beverley and Hull!
