When a lifelong friend dies, his buddies carry out his last wishes: to take his ashes and dispose of them off the pier in the seaside town of Margate. Flashbacks of the group's younger days shed light on their relationships, and their long-buried secrets. Meanwhile, Jack's wife undertakes her own very significant journey. As the pilgrimage turns into a pub-crawl the men discover that it's your friends who break your heart - and your friends who mend it. Adapted from the 1996 Booker Prize-winning novel by British writer Graham Swift.
