On an autumn day in 2006, on the Isle of Wight, Jack Luxton, former Devon farmer and now the proprietor of a seaside caravan park, receives the news that his soldier brother, Tom, not seen for years, has been killed in Iraq. For Jack and his wife, Ellie,this will have a potentially catastrophic impact. For Jack in particular it means a crucial journey -- to receive his brother's remains, but it is also a journey into his own most secret, troubling memories and into his and Ellie's past.
