Synopsis

Jim's throwing watermelons off his office roof, testing the effect for a possible suicide. But then there is Sammy on an adjacent roof about to jump herself. Together they set off searching for other ways out than down. Sammy's ex-boyfriend, Dean, an artist struggling with his creativity, needs a muse - and who better than Gina, the experimental prostitute with dodgy legs who lives upstairs. However, Dean soon finds out that Gina never does anything for free. Sexually confused Olly is forced to look after his deaf-mute brother Chris for the day. Not only does Chris have gay feelings too, but is more comfortable with them than he is. They embark on a searing quest through Soho's gay community to help Chris loose his virginity. No-one has more to hide than oldest brother Pete. He's being stalked by Carol, a timid old lady looking for her son - a guy Pete knew from his violent drug days.

Fearfully Pete opens his frozen heart to Carol and they begin a treacherous journey to find her lost son. By the end, each lost soul finds a solution in darkness or in light.
