  • Synopsis

    Joe Power has done his bit for the cause and he’s content to be decommissioned - but his wife Marian has other ideas for him and their wayward clan. And when they do finally come face to face with party leader Jerome Evans – the very man who sold them out - it’s not quite in the circumstances they might have hoped for.
