One of Those Days

  • slideshow_large

Synopsis

We've all had 'one of those days' – when nothing seems to go right, when life just seems to be dealing you one poor hand after another. Unfortunately for Howard Whittam, that day is Judgment Day.

Howard and his wife Jean have lived a very ordinary life. They’ve never taken drugs, overtaken on the inside lane, or run naked through a graveyard. An unkind observer might even say they were dull. But somewhere deep down, these law abiding English suburbanites believed that one day, divine justice would reward them for their propriety. But when Judgment Day does arrive, it’s a logistical disaster. Too many people, not enough staff. So when Howard finds that due to a clerical error, he has been mistaken for the genocidal maniac Vlad the Impaler, he begins a downward spiral into what seems like a never ending abyss of paper work and mindless officialdom.
