A lone hitch hiker, marooned near a housing estate, has a dramatic effect on the lives of those around him.
Alexei Sayle stars as Ritblatt, a hitch hiker who only travels by this means of transportation,in his quest to reach Colchester. He is dropped off at a small roundabout in a ghost town and proceeds to make himself a crude shelter there. He keeps local residents awake with is portable radio, whilst waiting for the next lift to come his way.
