Kathy and Stephen have just returned form their daughter's wedding to their comfortable middle class existence. The wedding stimulates reminiscences of their own wedding and reflections of their own past. Kathy is keen to retain or recapture some of their excitement of their youth; growing up in the sixties. Stephen however, appears to be content with his career and middle class conservative lifestyle which has evolved over the past thirty years of their lives. But all that can change, and does so with Kathy using a couple of 'change agents' from their past.
