Nineteen year old Davey finds himself drunk, beaten and alone. He is rescued by the oddly-assorted inhabitants of an abandoned and beautiful house in the West Country, whose only condition for letting him join them is that he ask them no questions. Nearly forty years ago in that same house, burned-out rock star Jack Laker writes a ground-breaking comeback album, and abandons the girl who saved his life to embark on a doomed and passionate romance with a young actress. Set on his own destructive path, alcohol fuelled parties lead to deceit, debauchery and even murder. As Davey and his fellow housemate Priss try to reconstruct the pieces of the past and uncover the secrets of the house's inhabitants, both past and present, it becomes clear that the five strangers have all been drawn there by the events of that long-ago summer.
