Tommy's not a bad man

He's getting by

Renting a run-down room in his Uncle Maurice's house, just about keeping his ex-wife and kids at arm's length, and rolling from one get-rich-quick scheme to the other with his pal Doc

Then one day he comes to the aid of Aimee, who's not had it easy herself, struggling through life the only way she knows how

Their past won't let go easily, but together there's a glimmer of hope that they could make something more of their lives

Something extraordinary


With inimitable warmth, style and craft, The Night Alive deftly mines the humanity to be found in the most unlikely of situations
