In the disabled toilet in Tesco, we meet Billy and Neil. Dressed in combats and carrying enough explosives to blow the place sky high, they examine life and attempt to decide whether violence is sometimes the only way to be heard.
Billy: "This is it, ten minutes and it’s all coming out. I feel like I’ve been holding it in for so long.That’s how I feel, like I can’t bloody breathe."
Neil: "Mum’s doing steak and kidney pudding today. I ain’t dying on a steak and kidney pudding night."
With a title inspired by Kurt Cobain’s suicide note, this is a darkly comic exploration of the lives of young, working class men in austerity Britain, vividly exploring boys’ relationships with their dads, toxic masculinity, and our attitudes to terrorism.
