    The year is 1963. Nicky (Christopher Eccleston) returns from America, where he has been involved with the civil rights movement. His political ambitions threaten to part him from Mary (Gina McKee), the woman he loves, forcing her into the arms of their friend Tosker (Mark Strong). Meanwhile, a fourth friend, Geordie (Daniel Craig), is heading to London on the run from a pregnant girlfriend and alcoholic father.

    Over the next 32 years against the backdrop of an ever changing Britain, the lives of these four very different friends will become progressively more entangled as a captivating plot unfolds, tousled with affairs, marriage, corrupt police, a seedy porn empire, terrorist activities, homelessness and illness. The forces shaping the nation consequently change and shape the characters, devastating lives, tearing the couples apart and challenging the dynamics of even the firmest of friendships.
