Odrastajući u netolerantnom i neinformisanom svetu Engleske pedesetih godina prošlog veka mladi Chris Winters se trudi da se uklopi u rodne uloge koje takvo društvo nameće. Nakon što teško detinjstvo ostavi iza sebe za njega nastupaju malo svetliji dani kada upozna Juliju, ženu iz snova. Međutim, progoni ga sve snažnije osećanje kako živi neispunjen život. Neprekidno zamišljajući šta bi moglo biti Chirs biva pogođen spoznajom kako za neke životne odluke nema ispravnog rešenja, a upravo nas ona definišu.

Growing up in 1950s England in an intolerant and uninformed world, young Chris Winters struggles to fit into the gender roles dictated by wider society. A more than tough childhood left behind, Chris meets dream woman Julie, and life lightens a little, but the growing feeling that theirs is a life half lived haunts Chris. Endlessly imagining what might have been, Chris is finally struck by the realisation that for some decisions there is no right answer, and that it’s those that truly define us.
