Synopsis

Paul Callow has a dream. Fed up with city life and driving trains, he longs to commune with Nature and write novels. But that’s easier dreamt than done. The trauma of having two people fall under his train in as many weeks does little to improve his mood, until he hears that three fatal accidents in a month, qualifies you for early retirement with 10 years’ salary - lump sum!

Paul suddenly sees a way of clearing his debts and escaping to a better life. All he has to do is find a willing victim. After some bizarre encounters, he eventually meets up with itinerant Irishman Tommy Cassidy furious at being saved from certain death by jumping off a bridge. Paul offers him £1500 cash to wait till Monday.

Racked with guilt at having abandoned his family 8 years ago, Tommy decides to salve his conscience by paying them a visit and Paul insists on tagging along to protect his ‘investment’. But Tommy’s wife Rosemary and his daughter Frankie, now a beautiful, feisty and independent young woman, both harbour a deep-rooted grudge. Over the course of the weekend, relationships between all four are changed forever but when Monday morning arrives, Paul and Tommy are confronted with the harsh reality of the deal they struck.

Surely they won’t go through with it. Or will they? After all - A Deal is a Deal.
