Damian Horner is scared that fifteen years of advertising have turned him into a bastard. As he approaches his 40th birthday, he wants to see if he can be a good husband and a good father before it's too late. Siobhan, his wife, has other worries. Do marriage and kids mean she's now trapped in a world of suburban domesticity? Suddenly they decide to throw their lives in the air and escape to the French canals, taking their two small children with them. Told in two voices, we hear both sides of their story and get the whole truth as Damian and Siobhan describe coming to terms with themselves and their life on board an old fishing boat in France, with no space, no fridge, no charts, no deadlines and no flushing toilet.
