It is the summer of 2007 and six former friends, five men and one woman are attending a reunion in London organised by one of their number who has a special reason for wishing to see them all again. Some of those present have not seen each other for 40 years. But as they wander from pub to pub in central London, they find they are discomforted and at times feel threatened by the modern metropolitan world.
Gradually their long-held memories of each other are undermined, firstly by the changes wrought by age, and then by the revelation of secrets, some of which extend back to their student days in Leeds in the 1960s. Surprising truths about the past begin to emerge, and friendships begin to fracture. Their reunion is brought to an abrupt end by incidents, some violent, which threaten to dash the hopes that they had of reconnecting with the past and with each other.
