The misbehavior of a group of young men away at school seems to be indicative of what is waiting for them when they "grow up," in this slightly far-fetched account of then and now in the British upper classes. In 1973, the young men barely associate with Quentin (Martyn Stanbridge) because his family lives in Singapore, and they bully their lower classmate Cox (Anton Lesser) just because they feel like it. Alistair Mount (Dominic Jephcott), the ringleader of this group of nondescript wealthy men is particularly obnoxious. One decade later, Quentin is bored, still plays cricket with the old buddies, and in an ironic twist, Alistair's wife starts a liaison with Quentin that would flatten her husband if he ever found out - but he is in Northern Ireland, up to absolutely no good at all. Meanwhile, Cox - apparently an admirer of Che Guevara, approaches Quentin with plans of vengeance for those earlier years of persecution.
