"The last year of Dad’s life was a fucking nightmare. But you know what? That was one year in fifty. Rest of his life was pretty much awesome for him, you know? And I keep saying to myself - one year in fifty - that still makes his life, like, 98 percent happy, right? That’s pretty good statistics, right?"
Jen’s Dad was a chat show host, a national treasure. But now he’s dead and Jen’s getting spat at in supermarkets. To make matters worse, Uncle Len has made it his mission to help her get over it. Hiding from a very hostile world in a very shitty garage, Len and Jen down cider, drown mice, talk crap, mend cats, share painful secrets, tell appalling jokes and try to work out whether either of them has any kind of future whatsoever.
